From May after the schoolboy trials an associates program will be run by the NtiS coach which will involve schoolboy squad players not on NtiS scholarships. this program continues until the team travels to the championships at the end of June. the management positions for the 2011 schoolboy team were advertised mid February and the following have been appointed. Coach: Paul Healy – NTIS Asst Coach: Peter McGrath – Casuarina Rugby Club Manager: TBA Physiotherapist: TBA the coaching development officers will be working with schools in Katherine, Gove, tennant creek and Alice Springs. When trials, competitions and carnivals are run, from their work in these centres, we usually attract players/teams to a number of the events. At the schoolboy trials to be held in May players will be playing for their clubs to maintain a continuity in coaching, team cohesion and hopefully to attract additional players from schools who are not playing at this time. the club competition will have been running for a month. Last year we had players from, Gove, Katherine and Jabiru at the championship. the visit from Melbourne Grammar School is very welcome and will give our indigenous U/18 team and a schoolboy squad a game each prior to the championship. the school is also visiting some primary schools to run skills sessions. the NtRU coaching and development Officers, James tesoriero and Josh Philips are working with the Physical education staff in secondary schools and Physical education cluster co-ordinators for the primary schools to run rugby skills programs and coaching sessions, especially in the weeks leading up to the different carnivals/competitions. their focus this year has been on the indigenous carnival in term 1 and then the 7s competition in term 3. We are waiting on a new ceO to be appointed to the NtRU. i would expect that they will continue their support of schools rugby by making the facilities at Rugby Park available for all our competitions and also purchase the non-playing gear for the schoolboy team.
