Coach Testimonial

“Jim really engaged with me and taught me that the skill was more important than the drill! Famous words from a very famous man. He made it fun, interesting and realistic, so that I could break down the skill and understand it fully. Seeing examples of what the players do everyday and be able to work with world-reknowned players were second to none. Thank you, also to all your members of staff for having great patience when dealing with a very excited South African coach wanting to learn. Everyone made me feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble.”
Andre Beukes,
Head of rugby Brentwood Prep, Coach Basildon RFC

“My time at the NZSA was an amazing experience. Not only was I able to work with world-class coaches and train in an international stadium but I was also able to learn that the game of rugby is a vehicle for appreciating all life has to offer.”
