Ex-Lions Jaque Fourie, Julian Redelinghuys and Alwyn Hollenbach will help coach Lions schoolboys and juniors

Quote:
There are three legs to their programme:

1. Under-9 - Under-13
2. Under-14 - Under-18
3. School Leavers

The first two groups will have two two-hour sessions a week.

The school leavers will have a 10-month programme, from February to November in 2018.

In addition the project will also run clinics at schools for coaches and players.

Camps are common in school holidays and the off season.

SA's club rugby for schoolkids is virtually non-existent, sport at school level is the government's responsibility and most coaches at most schools are teachers who did coaching courses. Only the better rugby schools, and who have the funds, employ specialist coaches.

It's good to see the union getting more involved in school boy rugby, hopefully this could lead to a more organised club rugby schedule

Redelinghuys helped out at the Lions and since his retirement has been appointed at the Lions' Learning Hub to mentor junior players.

Redelinghuys, a qualified accountant, has already taken up a role at the Golden Lions Company where he will work at the Learning Hub as a mentor to the union's junior players.

He will help the youngsters complete their studies and make important financial decisions.


When he retired Jaque Fourie said that he wants to get involved in coaching, not sure what he has been doing the past year but it's good to see him involved at the Lions too.
