World Rugby coach educator,George Ndemi is impressed with the turnout during the training and education Super Weekend held in Nairobi on 29th and 30th April.
The participants of the training were taken through Level 2 course in 15s rugby coaching and a Level 2 15s rugby officiating which was led by Kenyan match official and World Rugby Match Educator Constant Cap.
There was also a First Aid In Rugby (FAIR) course conducted by World Rugby Medical Educator Dr. Joseph Kalanzi from Uganda.
According to Ndemi the participants were of an average age of 24 years and he believes that if they manage to complete the course they will increase the number of qualified coaches in the country.
“It was encouraging to see the participants go through the course with plenty of zeal. It was more encouraging to see a large number of these participants with an average age of 24 years participating in this particular course which requires a lot more planning and dedication. We do hope to see them complete the quest to eventually attain Level 2 certification, grow the pool of local coaches and impart the knowledge gained to the rugby fraternity.”,Ndemi told Kenya Rugby.
