Philippines NOC supports rugby expansion

17 Jul 2017
Manila, Philippines, July 17, 2017: The first World Rugby/Philippines Rugby Football Union coaching courses to be run outside Manila took place in Davao - the largest city in Mindanao Province. The courses helped develop and improve rugby coaching standards across regional parts of the Philippines.

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, which ran from June 10-12, was supported by the National Olympic Committee of the Philippines through Olympic Solidarity and doubled as a pilot programme to host similar courses in other 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.
