We’re excited to announce that Lao Rugby will be part of the YSEALI Laos Seeds for the Future cohort for 2019! Coaches Aeng Khang and Pern are working with their Vietnamese counterparts to coordinate a weekend of rugby and life skills for players from both countries, combined with the Champa Ban National Finals for Laos. We’re excited to hear about different strategies for planning between the two nations building on the skills they have learned as ChildFund Pass It Back Coaches. Thank you to Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative for making this collaboration possible!
The Lao Rugby Federation will host a booth at the annual UK in Laos Queen's Birthday Party event, where guests will be able to learn about the growth of rugby in Laos and opportunities to learn about gender equity through sport thanks to ChildFund Pass It Back!
Every year, coach group leaders and other LRF staff get together to brainstorm recruitment and events to help grow the sport of rugby in Laos. Training our staff is key to making sure that we can continue to serve more and more players and coaches each year!
Coaches will learn team management, teamwork, life skill facilitating, refereeing, and rugby skills at this training. Coaches who advance to a new level of coaching will receive certificates upon completion.
