CLUB PRESIDENT

As President, I’m striving to keep Centaurs as the premier rugby club for families in search of a high quality, positive rugby experience for their children. Keeping the focus on every player and their development. Building character through the rugby experience. Since I first pulled on a Centaurs Coach shirt over ten years ago, I’ve been bleeding Yellow and Blue ever since. It’s great being a Centaur, and I love this club!

Bryan is also Head Coach for U12s.

Wee Ling Tan

U11s, U12s, U13s, U14s

Coaching Centaurs since… 2017
Experience & Qualifications… I started playing netball when I was 13 years old, and have been playing ever since! I’ve played for schools and currently I’m playing with my club. I coach the local schools full time.
The best thing about coaching… there’s fun and games and everyone can have a go at all the activities and positions. It doesn’t really matter what your standard is at the moment, there’s always something for you to learn and take away. And at the end of the day, we make new friends, and friends who train hard together, are the best kind of friends.

Elly Syazwani

Experience & qualifications… I’ve been playing rugby since 2011, represented in the Singapore National 15s & 7s teams. I also have four years teaching background in a preschool and am a Sport Science & Exercise graduate.
What I love about rugby… is that it’s a complete team sport that values anyone of any shape and size coming from all walks of life – so size doesn’t matter. It also builds character and, most importantly, friendships along the way.
What I tell my players… “How you play is how hard you train.”

Anna Chen

Experience & qualifications… Been playing since 2009 and can’t get enough of it. Be it coaching, touring or refereeing, I’m always looking for ways to give back to the sport and enjoy it! World Rugby Level 1 coaching and refereeing.
I coach because… Having been in the 15s program for Womens, it’s exciting to be playing a part in shaping the next generation of talent. There weren’t many opportunities for girls to be playing rugby in Singapore when I was growing up, and I always wished I had picked it up sooner especially when I see the girls that are up early every Saturday, running and tackling hard. It’s great that Centaurs is providing that opportunity for the younger girls and I love helping out with it!
What I love about rugby… There is nothing quite like the feeling of putting your body on the line for the person next to you, and knowing that every one of your teammates would do the same for you. I also love how rugby is probably the only sport where, after the final whistle, both teams can celebrate and share a cold one!

Ben Ting

DIRECTOR

Ben played rugby throughout school and university when he lived in Scotland and transitioned to playing Touch after returning to Asia almost 20 years ago. He played Touch competitively with the Wanderers in the early 2000s and represented Singapore in the 2003 Touch World Cup in the Mixed Open category.

Despite injury set backs over the years, Ben continues to return to playing Touch competitively and enjoys contributing to the sport in a development and coaching capacity. Over the past two years, he has played and supported the development of Touch at Bucks Touch and he is currently training with the preliminary Men’s Over 30s squad in preparation for the 2019 Touch World Cup.

CQ Ang

CQ is one of our highly experienced Touch football coaches. He has been playing touch for 10 years, competing in both local and overseas tournaments. He has competed in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Bangkok, Perth, and several leagues in Singapore. Memorable Touch achievements include being champion for Country of Origin in 2017 (Singapore), being selected to play for Singapore All Stars team for 2 consecutive years, and representing Monsoon Touch in WA State Champs in Australia.

CQ has been coaching Monsoon Club and teams in university for 4 years. He values team spirit, positive attitude and good sportsmanship and emphasises these in his coaching sessions. He focuses not only on how to develop the team as a whole, but also on individual skills and character; understanding each player and tapping into their potential. Playing team sport is not just about the end goal but also about enjoying the process of learning and growing as a team. His coaching philosophy is “Focus on excellence and success will follow”.

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'”.
