“Course candidates Ryan Arcus, James Nicolson, Beth Thomson, Daria Byers, Hannah Stead and Keira Johnston all did exceptionally well throughout the 2 days. On the Thursday the candidates worked through their Youth coaching course booklet which provided all the theory/background of the course. On the Friday they got a chance to test these skills on their practical elements by helping or assisting with the Rugby activity day. Thanks to all Youth coaching course candidates who did a fantastic job and helped contribute towards the youngsters enjoying the Rugby activity day. Well done to all!”
“I learned a lot from the course and I now appreciate how difficult it is for coaches. I hope I do more coaching in future.” - Keira Johnston
“I thoroughly enjoyed the course and I feel I’ve learned lots. Working with the children was a tiring but rewarding experience.” - James Nicolson
The day kicked off with a huge 52 P1-3s all involved with the action. All kids registered in at 9:45am at Orkney RFC so we could get started on time. The session ran from 10am – 11:30am. There was lots of activity and you could see by the kid’s expressions they were having a great time! The hall was split into 4 stations which involved scoring tries, relay races, Stadium ball, piggy in the middle etc. The session was a great success and ran very smoothly as everyone was focused and having fun!
Moving on to the 16 P4 – 7s who all took part in the afternoon session from 1pm – 2:30pm. All participants registered in at 12:45pm once again at Orkney RFC.
A huge thank you to all coaches but the day couldn’t have been such a success without every one of the kids who took part! Hope to see everyone sticking in at their rugby to keep improving!!
