Former Flying Fijians utility back Seremaia Bai wants to assist in producing more rugby coaches in the local scene.
The 37- year old was on the job yesterday morning swamped by aspiring coaches of the western division at the Nataly Park,Nadi.
He was conducting rugby clinic in a bid to in terms of development sessions with coaches and players.
The former Leicester Tigers centre believes that his career can only be justified as he continues to assist the local budding rugby players and coaches.
“In doing this, it will be a way of giving back to what rugby has done to my life here in Fiji,” he said.
“This was my vision when I first started playing professional rugby; it was to start up a rugby academy. I want to share my knowledge and expertise with players who want to learn about the game.
“This is just the beginning of things to come, when I first started some of the project in the islands and the people have been forgotten. They have the talent to try and this the way of trying to reach them.
“This is the way to educate them, but not only educate them in terms of rugby skills but more into a more balanced approach or a holistic way of approaching player and developing them in terms of rugby.
He added that he will be having a clinic in Rakiraki, Nausori, Naitasiri and in Burebasaga Village in Rewa.
Bai said plans are also in place for one to be held in Kadavu in December and Vanuabalavu in Lau.
“It involves a lot of resources and I am just starting from scratch, The day outline is from or 9am to 12pm for the coaches development, sharing ideas and resources and just a few things for the coaches here in Fiji.
And then we teach them the proper techniques, the tactical understanding of the game and rugby knowledge.
He is blessed and thanks Digicel and BSP for supplying the rugby balls and a tent.
“Last week 26 people as young as 15 yrs to 20 and coaches attended. I concentrate more on recovery, how to eat, sleep, recovery and managing finance.”
