As we all continue to navigate the situation here in Hong Kong, I wanted to take the opportunity to commend all those involved here at Valley Fort for the time and effort they have continued to put in to ensure as many of our players stay connected and engaged.
The last month has seen the establishment of our online “Sunday Sessions” and as I visit each session each week I am amazed at the enthusiasm and thought that has gone into each of these sessions by the coaches. From fitness, strength and skills to trivia and Rugby analysis the activities are varied and interactive. It has also been wonderful to see players from other mini clubs joining some of the sessions to get a taste of the Valley Fort community and what we can offer even in these difficult times. A special thanks to Harry Sayers for his establishment of base content and all the pro coaches and parent coaches who have committed so thoroughly to the concept.
As we head towards the off season, we can be optimistic that the 2022/23 season will be free of disruption and challenging and exciting as ever.
Coaches are looking to further their qualifications by completing courses during the downtime and more information will be coming regarding a Valley Fort Level One Coaching Course (World Rugby Accredited) for those interested.
Finally, I know many of our Valley Fort community will be travelling over the next few months. Can I thank you all for you wonderful contribution to the club this season, wish you the safest of travel and look forward to the next chapter of Valley Fort Rugby.
Yours in Rugby,
Director of Rugby
Valley Fort Rugby Football Club
