RUGBY Academy Fiji Milo Holiday Clinic drew in a large crowd of young rugby enthusiasts during its one-week program at the Albert Park in Suva.

Rugby Academy Fiji founder Seremaia Bai said the rugby clinic teaches the kids more than just rugby.

“It is always nice to see the kids coming in and enjoying themselves, the whole point this holidays is basically getting something active for the kids and from our last clinics and this one has drawn in a lot of new kids who are actually here for the first time and that is a good sign for us,” said Bai.

“While enjoying themselves, the kids not only learn about rugby skills and the game but they also learn tips on life and how to stay active and healthy.”

Bai said he was pleased with the development of the sport in the country as more organisations and groups organise rugby clinics for young kids.

“I have heard a lot of the same program that has been run by other organisations and it is all for the benefit of the children, and with the many opportunities provided to them. These kids should maximise their time and make the most of what’s handed to them,” said Bai.

The clinic will end today with a tag rugby festival at Albert Park in Suva.
