Personal statement

I was born and raised in South Africa and started playing rugby from a young age, I fell in love with the sport right away. After a very successful career at school and 5 years of professional rugby, I hung up my boots for good.

I immediately wanted to give back to the sport and was enrolled at Northern Cape High as the u/15A head coach. Having limited experience and still very young I grabbed the opportunity with both hands.

I am a very open minded coach, whom strives on innovative thinking and hard work. Always trying to improve myself and using my combined experience as an ex-professional rugby player, I have already adapted my own unique coaching philosophies and style. Through commitment and persistence I was given the opportunity to coach Northern Cape High’s 1st XV rugby team in 2015, where I am currently still situated.

 

I have grown immensely as a coach and although being young, I have proven to be more than capable of taking on some of the best 1st XV rugby sides in South – Africa. I am a strong leader whom focuses on improving the skills, vision, technique and confidence of every individual, whilst understanding the importance of team building. I am driven to succeed as a rugby coach, my goals are set and my focus is in the right place.
