On Saturday, 7 September, Union High School’s rugby coaches attended a World Rugby Level 1 coaching course.
The course was presented by Mr Anthony Heugh – an experienced World Rugby Coaching Educator that has earned the respect of top coaches across the globe.
Mr Heugh is a former Eastern Province Elephants coach, and served as technical analyst for the SA Women’s team at the World Cup hosted in England in 2010.
Union’s upcoming coaches found the course to be very beneficial, while the school’s more experienced coaches found the course instructor’s guidance on how to thoroughly plan, deliver and review practices and how to put an entire season’s plan to paper, very helpful.
The coaches will complete the Level 2 course in February next year, where after all coaches will be assessed in May to be awarded their World Rugby Level 2 qualification.
