Ingrid Koehler – Mum

Mike coached my son (in London) for about seven months. He was absolutely fantastic with all the kids (and the parents!) and my 5 year old was very fond of him. Mike’s cheerful but focused approach even made training enjoyable when it was cold and wet and we were standing in mud.

Both my son and I were new to rugby (I’m American), but I was impressed by the way he and his colleagues taught basic rugby skills through fun games. It also was a great introduction to the game for me, too and I’ve become a fan. We’ve since moved on to one of our local clubs where my son has been more than ready for the challenge
