Singapore Rugby Union together with World Rugby & Asia Rugby hosted the Mega T&E Week at the National Youth Institute of Sport and Singapore Sports Institute from 8th to 10th March 2019.

 

15 Educator course participants from South East Asia and 6 provisional Trainers from across Asia attended the courses which saw a total of 5 strands being delivered over the intensive 2 day World Rugby Educator course. The strands covered were - Coaching, Match Officiating, Strength & Conditioning, Medical & Match Commissioner. This is the 1st time in Asia (and maybe Globally) that 5 strands have been run together, and the outcomes were fantastic! All Educator Course participants found it both insightful and rewarding when they participated in micro practical sessions from other strands and yet had to deliver their own topics.

 

Day 3 saw close to 50 participants attending course across 4 strands - Coaching, Match Officiating, Strength & Conditioning and Medical. S&C and Coaching strands even shared the LTPD module where coaches sat in together and shared learnings.

 

The National Youth Institute of Sport and Singapore Sports Institute facilities were excellent and this made the courses even more enjoyable.

 

Singapore Rugby thanks all the Trainers, Educators & Participants for making this happen and also the partners that supported the courses and  looks forward to hosting this again in 2020.
