The Club Newlands Coaching Clinic…where rugby legends are born. 

PUBLISHED: July 19, 2016

The 2016 annual Club Newlands Coaching Clinic took place at the High Performance Centre in Belleville, on Wednesday, 13 July and Thursday, 14 July 2016. A group of dedicated development coaches from Western Province Structures engaged with over 100 aspiring DHL Stormers and DHL Western Province players teaching them basic and fundamental rugby skills.

The event would not have been as successful without the help of our amazing sponsors. The Club Newlands Team would like to thank DHL, Caledon Casino and Bok Radio for their generous contributions. We also received a scrumptious breakfast, lunch and snacks from King Pie, PenBev, Pancake Man and Ola, as well as wonderful goodie bag goodies from BrightRock, Lausanne Dairies, J&M Biltong and JK Trading.

“A big, big thank-you to all of our sponsors, who made this clinic a success,” said Club Newlands Manager, Vincent Heyns. “We really appreciate their assistance and the kids thoroughly enjoyed the experience”

 “All participants walked away with fundamental rugby skills and technical training, which they can apply the next time they participate in a competitive match” said Heyns.

The kids interacted with players from the DHL Western Province Currie Cup squad, who also handed over the certificates and medals at prize-giving.

 “We are very happy with the way this year’s clinic went off,” continued Heyns, “and we are already looking forward to next year’s clinic!”
