Nashua Rugby Skills Project at Piet Retief High School

On Thursday, 15 March, the Nashua Rugby Skills Project hosted a coaching workshop at Piet Retief High School with Shadowball and rugby legend, Conrad Jantjes. The aim of the Nashua Rugby Skills Project is to help young rugby players improve their ball skills.

The Shadowball is used in the workshops to show the players and coaches how it can be used to vastly improve the ball skills of a team. The Shadowball was designed by Gary Crookes and has one flat side, which allows a rugby player to practice passing and catching on their own.

Not only did the U/14-team from Piet Retief High School attend the workshop, but a few young players from Mkhondo House, Piet Retief Combined School and Harmony Park also attended the workshop.

The team will be back in Piet Retief in a few weeks’ time to re-assess the local players’ skills and measure their improvement. An improvement of up to 220% has been noted in hardworking players, with numerous players improving more than 100%.

Players who show the most improvement will stand the chance to go to the Currie Cup and compete against professional rugby players during halftime in the skills test. This is a great opportunity for the local schools to improve their rugby skills and perform even better. Good luck to all the players – we look forward to seeing good results from all of you.
