Rugby legends inspire KDVP

King David High School Victory Park (KDVP) hosted a rugby clinic on 5 February attended by Springbok legends Jean de Villiers and Schalk Brits as special guests. Students from KDVP Primary School, King David Ariel, and King David Sandton were also invited.

Rugby has immense benefits for students as it helps build fitness, endurance, and strength in the upper and lower body, as well as agility and speed. The clinic kicked off with an introduction of the former Boks to the students, followed by a general meet and greet with De Villers and Brits. Several stations were set up on the field, and students were split into three groups. Brits took one group, focusing on how to scrum properly and what to do when you’re in a ruck, while De Villiers focused on passing, catching, and other tactics.

With rugby season coming up, the clinic was beneficial for the players as they gained knowledge and learned new tricks from the Boks players that they can use on their journey. The clinic was also a powerful motivator for students, who left inspired to work even harder at their game.
