We are please to announce that St Vincent, with the assistance of Caribbean Caoching volunteers, will be relaunching women's rugby on the island.
In the past women's rugby has been very strong, but in recent years has seen a significant decline. The president of St Vincent Rugby, Sophie Goddard ,commented, “SVG used to have a very successful female rugby team, in fact, one of the best in the region! Women here are naturally strong, so that mixed with specialized training produces some great athletes. Rugby is one of the fastest growing sports, especially amongst women. Women’s rugby has seen tremendous growth and investment and is currently an opportunity we are missing out on here in St. Vincent. With the arrival of 2 news coaches, one being female, it is the perfect time to launch again.”
One of our aims is to continue the development of rugby, both male and female, at all ages and abilities. Our volunteers coaches work with communities, schools and the national teams to progress the sport and make it accessable to all.
