Sports coaching continued to thrive at Davetarua Primary School this week. The TP team decided to help fine tune the boys’ rugby skills, as well as helping teach the girls how to play rounders. It was a great effort by the team to help implement some structure to the rugby field, and with some solid tackling drills, the Fijian boys looked like they were ready for the international stage!
The introduction of ‘British Bulldogs’ as a warm up exercise proved extremely popular with the kids, and after the tackling drills looked all the more impressive. The boys were split into age groups and taught a variety of workouts and tips to help utilize their natural talent. While the younger boys were focusing on enjoying the basics of rugby, some of the older boys were getting stuck into some moves with our TP boys. It’s great to see how far the kids can come in such a short time with the help and enthusiasm from our team.
Rounders was also an instant hit with the girls. With plenty of fun games as well as drills put in place for the kids, it was a great atmosphere at the rounders field with lots of laughter and high spirits. After a few practice games the kids challenged our TP girls to a game. Although the kids had plenty more players to help bat and field, that’s still no excuse for our TP girls as they had no reply to the kids onslaught, who take it only as a sign of their excellent coaching and guidance!
