THE Zimbabwe Rugby Union will conduct a Level 2 course in Harare at Prince Edward High School as part of the association’s plans to equip Level 1 local coaches. The course will run from on September 29- October 1 and the course fee will be US$120.
Aimed at enhancing the capacity of coaches in the Level 1 ranks, the course will be conducted by Zimbabwe Rugby Union director Nsikelelo Sibanda. The Level 2 certificate is done over a period of a year. One should be actively involved in coaching where they are expected to enter their season’s activities in a diary that will then be submitted to the World Rugby educator.
Manicaland will be represented by Brendon Chombo, who said he was looking forward to the course. Chombo is currently coaching Mountain Lions Rugby Club, Mutare Poly and Africa University. He is also a holder of Level 2 World Rugby Strength and Conditioning Certificate.
Sibanda underscored the importance of the course saying it will go a long way in equipping local coaches with the requisite skills to partake in the development of the game. He also talked about the Inter-City league which has not been running since June.
“We will have our Level 2 course. It is open to all Level 1 holders. We believe the course will go a long way in equipping the local coaches. The coaches need to keep up with rules and regulations of the game since they are always changing,’’ he said.
