Rugby Expert Visits SVG

The SVG Rugby Union has welcomed a rugby coaching expert after successfully applying for an Olympic Solidarity grant through the SVG Olympic Committee. Ruben Duque was selected by World Rugby to help develop the sport of rugby sevens and to support the union by analyzing structures to help them grow and move forwards.

Ruben will be visiting St. Vincent over the next 4 months conducting various meetings, clinics, coaching sessions, and conducting courses for persons involved in coaching rugby sevens and the schools Get Into Rugby programme.

President Sophie Goddard commented, “It is hoped that after Ruben’s visits and analysis of the Union as a whole, we’ll be in a better position to develop our local coaches and persons involved in the union, so we have more structure and development pathways for the future. We’ve always been OK with admin and organizing, but some of the structures need improving’.

The Union would like to thank the OC for all their help and support thus far in what is a crucial step in developing rugby sevens especially now that it is an Olympic Sport.
