Sierra Leone National Rugby Association with support from the National Olympic Solidarity on Saturday ended a 3-day training level 1 “Seven Coaching Course” at the Siaka Stevens Stadium in Freetown
The course, which kicked-off last Thursday, attracted participants across the country as they were taught several rules and techniques about the sport.
Administrative Secretary of the National Olympic Committee of Sierra Leone (NOC-SL), Amadu Gibril Koroma, said the training was something special for the Rugby Association, adding that the coaches have learnt new ideas that would not only capacitate them, but would help project the sport in the country.
President of the Association, Jeremiah Moshupeh said Rugby was being played during the 1970s through the help of a British company. He said because of his passion towards the game, he decided to resume the game again in improving the lifestyle of young men and women in the country who find it interesting.
“As an association, we are working hard to see that the game of Rugby plays right across the country and training coaches is one way to achieve such goal”, he added.
The Ruby president further revealed that that would not only be the final course of the Association, and that more courses were on the pipeline for members and officials.
The course expert, Robert Bwali, said it was nice to capacitate sports men and woman in rugby as it has helped and would continue to help them acquire the required knowledge for the sport.
