International rugby players to lead children's camp at Doha RFC


(MENAFN- Gulf Times) Haka Rugby Global (HRG) is set to return to Doha RFC (DRFC) this month for a second five-day rugby camp for children, following the success of the first visit in April.
Open to boys and girls aged between 8 and 18 of all abilities, the camp led by Troy Nathan, an international rugby player, and Regan Sue, a professional rugby coach will take place from October 29 to November 2 at DRFC.
The camps are designed to showcase Maori culture and the best of New Zealand rugby. Offering a range of activities, the sessions are designed to work on a variety of skills and techniques, such as passing, tackling, and the importance of teamwork.
'We're really looking forward to coming back to Qatar for our second Haka Rugby Global camp. It's very exciting for us to have the opportunity to not only share our way of rugby, but also teach our Maori culture to the players; through which we hope to give them the chance to grow and gain leadership skills. It's very satisfying for us, as coaches, when players from many different rugby and cultural backgrounds come together. These players don't just become brothers and sisters, they form a tribe, and that is what Haka Rugby Global is all about, HRG co-founder Sue said.
For his part, DRFC's director of rugby, Brook Tremayne, said, 'We're very excited about welcoming Haka Rugby Global back to Doha for the second time this year. The previous participants had the chance to practice new rugby skills, take part in educational team building activities, and really learn what it's like to be a part of a functioning rugby team.
'We had a great turn out in April, and Haka Rugby Global's return only proves its positive effect on the growth and interest in rugby here in Doha. And, as the sport continues to gain traction in the Middle East, it is becoming increasingly important to offer development opportunities to children.
HRG was founded in 2016. Alongside the camps it also runs an international academy and specialises in rugby recruitment. This year, it will host 50 camps in 22 countries, reaching over 40,000 children.
