THE Suva Rugby Union will conduct coaching clinics every week until the start of the season next month.

A clinic was held on Thursday at Albert Park where 24 coaches from the 30 registered clubs were present.

Union secretary Mitieli Waqa said the workshop was the idea of Fiji Rugby Union rugby development manager Sale Sorovaki.

"The course is important so that we can up-skill our coaches on the latest rules of the game and other areas which will assist them in improving their coaching skills," Waqa said.

"The coaches have been able to gauge their rugby knowledge. It was a great success."

Waqa said the union received positive feedback from the coaches and therefore they would organise more workshops.

"We're hoping to have these workshops every week leading up to the start of the season next month on April 12."

He said those coaches who missed out on the workshop could attend the next one.

Waqa also advised the coaches to put the knowledge from the workshop to good use.

"Take what you've learnt from this workshop and use it at club level."
