UR7s To Grace 2015 Kabeberi 7s

ur7UR7s has today announced that  they will be part of 2015 Kabeberi Sevens to be held in Nairobi on September 5th and 6th as part of the Kenyan leg of the UR7s Africa beginning of 4th September and running through to mid-October.

The coaching tour will take the UR7s Academy coaches and the UR7s Legacy Program coaches the length and breadth of the country as they visit new clubs, meet new people and work in clubs, schools, universities and junior national teams.
UR7s CEO, Tom Burwell said of the schedule “With less than 3 weeks to go until we head to Uganda we are getting very excited. We are very pleased to announce the full touring schedule for Kenya today which is the most substantial part of the tour. We will be heading back to see some old friends at clubs and schools and also going to completely new areas of the country that we didn’t get the chance to visit in 2014”
“Personally to be heading east to Thika and Nanyuki and south to Mombasa is something I am very proud of and to be able to do so alongside the coaches from the Legacy Program with the touring coaches goes a long way to show how the program has grown in the past 12 months”
“The support of the KRU over the past 20 months has made this possible. Their vision in allowing us to help with the development of rugby 7s at a grassroots level has led to us employing a full-time Legacy Development officer and coaches in Nairobi in a program that we intend to expand in other areas of the country following the coaching tour going into 2016”
The Kenyan leg of the UR7s Africa program runs from the beginning of September through to mid-October before the team head off to Zambia and then on to Zimbabwe.
The coaching team for 2015 includes the likes Oliver Clough who was also involved in 2014 and Mat Turner (England 7s). They will be joined by a number of other players and coaches who will be announced in the coming weeks in the lead up to the tour. The Legacy program coaching team of Kenny Andola, Samuel Montari (both Kenya 15s caps) and Kevin Atandi will be heavily involved in the tour as will a number of the Kenya 7s players.
