The next members of the Philippine Volcanoes are not lying dormant for long after Ateneo de Davao recently hosted the Philippine Rugby Football Union (PRFU) World Rugby Coaching Course.
The level one course drew 15 participants.
PRFU director Matt Cullen told Sun.Star Davao of his intention to develop interest in the sports among the youth of the country.
“Ultimately we wanted the kids to represent the country in 14, 16, and 20 or become a part of the Philippine Volcanoes,” Cullen said.
“We also want to teach the fundamentals of rugby football, and to do this, we will start teaching touch rugby which is non-contact.”
Educating coaches on the nuances of the game is, likewise, a top priority.
