We need referees very badly. Please send a representative from your club. The goal is to have at least 1 "Club Referee" for each team within PNRFU.
In partnership with Helping Hands Noramise, Budd Bay Rugby, a 501c3 non-profit organization, has the opportunity to send a representative to Limbe, Haiti to coach a clinic to develop Haitian coaches that will remain in the area to continue working with the youth. This clinic will help build a sustainable foundation for rugby to grow in Haiti.
Budd Bay Rugby has worked with Helping Hands Noramise for several years. The organization was started by one of the original Budd Bay Rugby players, Rosedanie Cadet. Our club has sent rugby balls, t-shirts, water bottles, cleats and other equipment to Haiti, but we have yet to be able to help them build their coaching base. Rugby is really picking up in Limbe and there is a need for qualified coaches to continue building the sport. Helping Hands Noramise is coordinating a coaching development clinic to share skills with the people of Limbe so that they can continue to build the sport in their region.
Budd Bay Rugby has selected Trevor Anderson to represent our club at the coaching clinic in Limbe, Haiti. Trevor has been a part of Budd Bay since its inception, as a player, volunteer, board member and coach. He is currently the coaching director for our club and will bring his knowledge of and passion for the sport to Haiti with him.
