In July 2017 the rugby club organized a training session for non-rugby players. This training session was attended by 25 sports enthusiasts from more than 15 countries. We did this session together with the Lions Club at Hortaleza Rugby Club. The session included rugby coaching exercises covering the basics of all aspects of the game including passing & handling, rucking & mauling, the scrum and more. We closed the session with the traditional touch match and the never absent beers!
September marks the beginning of a new intake from almost all Masters programs at IE! We had players from IMBA, MIM, MIF, Big Data, International Relations, LLM, and cybersecurity, among others. After a few weeks for soft landing of new students, Rugby Coordinators coordinate the first after summer session of the best networking club at IE… IE Rugby Club.
This training session was attended by students from all programs and from 5 continents. The objective was to introduce ourselves, so we split the training from Lions at Hortaleza Rugby Club. At the beginning, coordinators we have coordinators the different programs helped organizing ten basic training exercises and asked about the rugby experience of new comers. We concluded the session stretching with Lions and conducting the stretch in 10 different languages. Great first session guys, WELCOME!
