Drover was one of only 30 coaches in the country selected for the all-expenses paid week-long trip to England to study coaching with England’s Premiership teams, rugby’s equivalent to the National Football League.

As a result of the intensive program to be held in March, Drover will earn Level-300 coaching certification which is held by only six coaches in the state and about 500 coaches nationwide.
Coach Drover was on the inaugural staff when the Hamilton Rugby Football Club started two years ago and resides in the Hamilton School District.

Hamilton High School communication arts teacher and Girls’ Rugby Head Coach Barry Holloway appreciates what he has already done for the team.

“I don’t think the team would have been as successful on and off the field without him.” Holloway said. “He is incredibly deserving of this honor, and I am excited to see what he will bring to Hamilton after getting experience with some of the top teams in Europe.”
