Introducing first XV coach Frank Ulberg

“Playing rugby brings countless benefits, from health and wellbeing to skills and values like teamwork, communication and comradeship and a collective approach to achieving a goal together.”

New first XV coach Frank Ulberg has a vision for rugby at ACG Strathallan and, with strong growth in the sport and many players choosing to play for the first time this season, the right foundations have been laid to achieve it.

“I aspire for our school to be known for both its academic and rugby sporting greatness,” he says. “And to be recognised as a dominating body within Counties rugby. This year’s stellar growth means we’re in a good place and the contribution of our new players next season will be priceless.”

Having first taken up coaching as a way to be more involved with his son’s rugby, Frank now has around a decade’s coaching experience, most recently coaching the under-15s and 2nd XV to success at Rosehill College.

He also has a social work degree and more than 18 years of experience working with children and young people with challenging behaviour – many in state care.

This influences his coaching style.

“To have the opportunity to work with students who choose to make better choices in life, this is my ‘why’. It’s about building a positive dynamic and strong culture within the team, both on and off the field. If a team has respect, care, honesty, hard work, accountability, and humility, they are already winners, irrespective of results.”

Playing rugby brings countless benefits, he says – from health and wellbeing to skills and values like teamwork, communication and comradeship and a collective approach to achieving a goal together.

Teamwork, he says, is key.

“While size, skill level, natural talent and speed are part of the equation, success is not achieved in isolation. The best outcomes are only achieved through working as a collective unit.”
