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'”.
