Core strength

I was introduced to wheelchair rugby at the training camps for the 2014 Invictus games training camps. As an introduction to the sport there was none better.
Whilst not good enough to be selected it started a continued love of the sport. I was unable to play until this last year when the Dragons Wheelchair Rugby team, started in Cwmbran, as part of the WRU and GBWR initiative to have a Wheelchair Rugby Team in every region of the principality. I am now lucky enough to be part of the coaching team. This was due in part to the GBWR level 1 Wheelchair Rugby Activators course This has gone a long way to motivate me to pursue coaching in this wonderful sport, taking the level 2 coaching course as soon as I can. I have lately had some difficult health and especially mental health issues, depression keeping me in the safe haven of the house, getting up with little purpose, except on a Tuesday. Tuesday is wheelchair rugby day at the Dragons in Cwmbran. This team of wheelchair Rugby players give me a focus and drive to get out and do something useful. The social aspect of being part of a group lightens my day and gives me a purpose, and also involves my wife as a volunteer. Wheelchair rugby has given me new drive, new focus and a purpose to do well for myself and the team I am humbled to be a coach with.
