Johnny Kite's Rugby Coaching Sessions
This weekend we had Three Touring Teams take part in training sessions run by Johnny Kite with some help from director Chris Kite. Johnny is a great young athlete who has been a part of the Gloucester Academy since the age of 13. Through the years Johnny has received some really high level of coaching from people like; Former England and Gloucester full back Olly Morgan, Martin Johnson, Will Greenwood and Austin Healey. With all these high level coaches Johnny has been taking in the drills and thinking of ways to use them to also help him as a coach and a player. He Currently is studying at Hartpury College where he is studying for an extended diploma in sports excellence, this is helping him gain more knowledge and experience in coaching. This weekend he had two different training sessions with Doncaster RFC U12's and Tring RFC U13's where he ran a mixture of different drills and then making sure that these skills picked up were then taken into a game situation.
Johnny also took the Leicester Lions U10's touring side for an extended warm up before their match against Cheltenham North. Where he taught them how to have affective communication with their team-mates and how to get 'Match Ready'.
