OUR COACHES

HIGHLY TRAINED, EXPERIENCED & PASSIONATE

Ethan de Villiers

Coaching Ethos:

My approach to coaching is to teach in an understandable manner. I feel that today a lot of content taught throughout sports and lessons in the classroom are lost because they are not properly explained and justified as to why certain things are being taught. This has helped me develop my personal coaching philosophy of, “Prioritising development, not content covered”.

Experience:
I have been playing touch for 6 seasons, I have competed in tournaments and leagues across four different countries (China, South Africa, Singapore, and Malaysia), ranging from Men’s A, B, and C divisions as well as Mixed A and B. I have been assisting at my current school (OFS) to coach my fellow peers and younger peers in touch. My biggest Touch achievement has been being allowed to represent Singapore against the Olympic Fijian rugby team back in late 2016.

More about Ethan:
As an active member within the touch community both on and off the pitch, this has allowed me to gain contacts for being able to host more plentiful and larger scale events as a coach, as well as being able to expose myself to many different coaching views and techniques. I have been coaching sport (Soccer, Touch Rugby, Contact Rugby, and Basketball) since early 2012 in my previous school (ICS) and have carried my love for coaching since.
