RUGBY UNITED NEW YORK OWNER JAMES KENNEDY ON GBS KENYA
This past November, RUNY Owner James Kennedy, Assistant Coach Tiffany Fa’ae’e and athlete Derek Lipscomb traveled to Kenya to attend the International Conference on Population and Development as part of RUNY’s partnership with the UNFPA (see photo highlights here). The RUNY members were featured on multiple panels discussing sports as a vehicle to end gender biases worldwide and provide young people the opportunity to succeed.
During this trip, the team also visited Shamas Rugby Foundation. There, the team echoed the ideas shared at the conference, emphasizing that the values and skills athletes learn from rugby can translate to personal and professional success. The team worked with Shamas coaches to lead the athletes through rugby drills to improve upon their skills and tactical decision-making.
