Over 65 beginner and intermediate level coaches took part in World Rugby-accredited courses covering Get Into Rugby along with Level One and Level Two Rugby Sevens coaching programmes.

The course was supported by the National Olympic Committee of the Philippines through the Olympic Solidarity framework and doubled as a pilot program to host similar courses in other regional cities in the Philippines.

As the Asian region prepares for Rugby World Cup 2019 and the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the activity in the Philippines will help grow the game in terms of numbers and technical knowledge and create a positive legacy for the game in Asia.
