Simon has the opportunity to go to the International Rugby Academy of New Zealand in Palmerston North, this February, to sit under amazing leadership . He’ll be able to learn from former All Blacks & other highly successful professional players and coaches at the All Blacks training facility. The High Performance Coaching Course is held with high prestige amongst the rugby world and to say I’m a proud wife, is an understatement.
“IRANZ is the most comprehensive rugby education provider in the world. For coaches, it is a Rare opportunity to work intensively with the worlds best coaches in a practical environment.” (quote from their website)
If you know Simon, you know his love of rugby and his passion for people. 16 years ago he hung up his boots to pursue his passion for people and became a full time missionary. 14 years ago he had a dream of mixing his love of rugby & passion for people and using that ball as a tool to reach out to more people. Since then many young people from many nations have been blessed by the passing of a rugby ball.
It may seem like just another sport, but sport can be a language of its own. And it’s not always about how good the player is on the field, but the player’s character off the field that builds the person into the best they can be; for themselves, their team, their family, their community!
Simon has only started scratching the surface, with all he has to offer, as a coach. Seeing him complete his level 4 is just the next step in a greater picture and dream!
Please consider helping Simon develop himself so he can impact more people around Australia and the world.
