STUDENTS of the Port Moresby International School (POMIS) got their taste of what it takes to be a Kumul.
In preparation towards the Rugby League World Cup in October, members of the Team Kumuls squad took time out yesterday to run ball skills and drills with Year 7 and 8 students at POMIS.
The clinic was a great way to cap off the third camp.
The students were taken through some of the drills and training methods that Team Kumuls members underwent during the week – only at a less intense pace.
In their second appearance in visit, the Kumuls cheered the kids on as they were taught basic skills of passing, tackling exercises and kicking.
Sports teacher Avaireso Enoch said that it was great having the Team Kumuls squad members share their knowledge and skills with the students, both male and female.
She said that it would also help them have more knowledge of the sport as they gear up for the Pacific In Union’s NCD School Rugby competition which kicks off soon.
“It boosts their morale when they watch their heroes demonstrate drills to them. It motivates them to play,” she said.
