The Kenya Rugby Union will host its first ever Medical super week that will see Educators from all over the World converge in Nairobi to conduct the various courses from the 17th to the 19th of September at Shallom Guest House.
The Super Week will have three courses running concurrently: Immediate Care In Rugby Level 2, First Aid In Rugby Level 1 and Activate Injury Prevention Program.

There is also a launch for a new course by World Rugby ahead of the Rugby World Cup 2019 “Activate injury prevention Program” that will be taught to educators here in Kenya to roll it out. Activate is a simple – to – implement exercise program that reduces the risk of injuries in the game and contributes to player performance,” said George Ndemi, the KRU Training and Education Coordinator
