KB coaches in Lao rugby collaboration

Rugby Promoting NGO, Kampuchea Ballop has named three of its coach-educators Dul Khemrin, Tho Khemara and Reth Ra, along with communications manager Steve Noble, to take part in the inaugural Pass It Back program to be held in Laos from Sunday to July 25,

PIB is an innovative program using rugby to equip children and young people in Asia to overcome challenges, inspire positive social change and “pass it back” to the community.

The project is supported by ChildFund Australia, Women Win and the Asian Rugby Football Union, who have come together in a unique collaboration to take forward three years of existing Rugby For Development experience in Laos, while targeting two of the biggest events in Asia over the next few years – the 2019 Rugby World Cup and the 2020 Olympics.

The intensive two week program will help the Cambodian participants interact with coaches from Laos and Vietnam in promoting rugby, first aid and life skills, and safeguard rugby for development activities.

“I hope Cambodian coaches will take away improved knowledge to build on their two years of coaching and training experience’’ Kampuchea Ballop’s Communications Manager Steve Noble said.
