Navugona: Clinic to help develop sport

Maciu Malo
Thursday, May 08, 2014

about 50 aspiring rugby league players attended a three-day rugby league clinic at the FNU ground in Natabua yesterday.

The clinic was organised by the Islands Electric Lautoka Crushers rugby league club with collaboration and assistance from the Saint Mary and ARL clubs in Australia.

Co-ordinator and Vodafone Fiji Bati manager Mesake Navugona said the three-day clinic was to introduce the sport to grassroots level.

He said the program was also aimed at developing children to become active members of the society.

"This course is targeted for under-6 to U16 grades but we have got some kids who are 3 and 4-year-olds," said Navugona.

"The objective of the program is to introduce, promote and develop the sport at an early age.

"Grassroots development is something Fijians lacked over the years and we are thankful to our partners for providing us the opportunity to groom young players.

"Most importantly we are educating these children to be actively involved in keeping their community safe, clean and free from crime."

Navugona said the program was an extension of the lessons taught at home and in the classrooms.

The program contents include introduction to rugby league, code of conduct, practical and basics, talk on self-development and mini-game.

He said the program would end with the presentation of awards on Friday.

Navugona thanked the ARL and Saint Mary for giving rugby league balls, jerseys and other sporting equipment to be used at the clinics.
