At the start of June, the HSBC Penguin Coaching Academy were invited by the COBRA Club in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia to deliver a World Rugby Level 2 coaching course along with a number of technical workshops.
The week long course, delivered by James Wade and Andrew Douglas, Coach Development Officers at Scottish Rugby, was attended by twenty coaches and teachers from across Malaysia with the aim of developing both their delivery and technical skills to take back to their respective states. As well as working through the content from the World Rugby Level 2 course, each afternoon the coaches worked through technical workshops on the scrum, and both attack and defence through controlled games, with the aim of providing them with updated content and understanding of those areas.
The coaches were great to work with and took away lots from the week. Furthermore, the hospitality from Tee Jay and the guys at the COBRA Club was outstanding, ensuring the participants were well hydrated in the sweltering heat!
