Nairobi - Two rugby coaches under the Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) have been sent to South Africa to attend an international rugby course.
Coaches Kevin Wambua and Michael Owino left the country to attend the International Rugby Board (IRB) Talent Optimization Programme (TOP) in the Southern African country.
Wambua coaches the Kenya Women’s national team, The Lionesses.
Owino, who is attached to the local Sevens squad, will join other participants for the one week clinic at Stellenbosch.
According to the KRU, IRB's TOP is an elite-level coaching clinic designed to supplement the IRB's coaching development programme.
“Participants will not only cover top level coaching education material, but also instruction on the business side of the modern game of rugby,” read a KRU statement.
The IRB have run a Talent Identification Programme (TIP) successfully at Stellenbosch University since 2007.
In 2011, the programme became much more aligned with other IRB Training and Education courses and pathways and was later rebranded as the IRB Top.
