Inge Visser is hoping to grow women’s rugby in the central west and is hosting a Western Region under 17s development day this Saturday in Parkes.NSW rugby star Inge Visser is hosting a women’s under 17s Western Region Academy of Sport (WRAS) Rugby 7s development day in Parkes on December 12.
Inge has been living in Cowra for two years, captaining Central West and NSW Country teams and has been a member of the NSW Rugby 7s team.
She is spearheading the program which is designed to support the development needs of the western region’s talented Rugby 7s players by providing an industry leading pre-elite performance sport development program.
Trials began the program, with the majority of work completed in the off-season, and will be followed by matches at the Clubs NSW Academy Games on the Central Coast from April 8-10 next year.
WRAS Rugby 7s on field training days will be held monthly in December, January, February and March.
Inge, who plays for the Cowra Eagles in the central west competition, has been coaching and teaching rugby throughout her career and is now coach of the WRAS Under 15s and 17s girls.
“My goal is to get womens rugby growing in the central west and to help every rugby club to have a girls and womens side in the near future,” the former Dutch international said.
“At the moment there are four womens teams in the central west competition – Cowra, Orange, Dubbo and Bathurst.
“Mudgee is putting a team forward for the coming season which is great.
“But, with the girls and talent we have at WRAS, and the enthusiastic attitude from most clubs, we hope to set up more women’s sides throughout the area,” she said.
The December 12 development day will see the WRAS Rugby 7s under 17 girls train at Pioneer Oval from 9.30am until 12pm.
Included as part of the training, WRAS will hold an open training for all girls in the region who are interested in playing rugby.
There will be a team of experienced trainers on hand and the morning will include some introduction games, ball and contact drills and a game.
Rugby 7s is now an Olympic sport and is growing all over the world.
WRAS is doing their utmost to give girls in the central west an opportunity to get involved in the sport.
All girls aged 14 and older are welcome to check Rugby 7s out at Pioneer Oval.
Interested girls need to take sports shoes or footy boots, clothes which can get dirty, water, healthy snacks and sunscreen.
