OUR COACHES

HIGHLY TRAINED, EXPERIENCED & PASSIONATE

Matthew John

Matthew has been playing Touch for 12 years. He’s competed at an enviably high level for Singapore, playing for the Men’s Open National team and at the World Cup 2015. As a coach, he’s been sharing his experience for 10 years across schools, junior colleges, clubs and universities. Notable successes have been with Raffles Junior College and Yale-NUS.

Rounding out his stellar touch CV, Matt is certified as a FIT qualified coach (Level 1) and a FIT qualified referee (Level 2).

Ethan de Villiers

Ethan has been playing touch for 6 seasons, competing in tournaments and leagues across China, South Africa, Singapore, and Malaysia. He’s played in Men’s A, B, and C divisions as well as Mixed A and B, and has been coaching fellow and younger peers at OFS. His biggest Touch achievement was representing Singapore against the Olympic Fijian rugby team back in late 2016.

Ethan’s approach to coaching is to teach in an understandable manner. He says, “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'”.

Audrey Kok

Audrey has been playing Touch for five years. She was a champion for: 2014 Shanghai International Touch Tournament Women’s Open; 2016 TAS Summer Touch league for Women’s B; 2016 Shanghai International Touch Tournament Mixed Open; and the 2016 Bangkok Southern Touch Tournament. She was in the Runner Up team for Country of Origin 2017 (Singapore) held by TAS and drafted into the Singapore All Stars (Cisco). Audrey currently plays for Monsoon Touch.

Audrey strongly believes in building up the team with good team spirit, players with good and strong character; to grow and nurture well rounded players of the future. She provides a positive environment for the learners, and allows them to develop their potential, furthermore developing them into great individuals. Her coaching ethos is “building skills, great character, and attitude on and off the pitch. Being malleable to what the environment or circumstances give”.
