JORDAN MCGREGOR STEPS US TO KICK GOALS AS PATHWAYS & PARTICIPATION MANAGER
A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION FOR RUGBY IN THE SOUTH
The Southern Rugby Alliance welcomes ex Southern Districts player Jordan McGregor as their Pathways and Participation Manager to support the development of rugby union in the southern regions of Sydney.
Jordan, a local junior of the Burraneer Rugby Club and Southern Districts Club (SDRC), is the perfect person for the role having come through and experienced the rugby pathways in our region first hand. Jordan was an integral part of the successful SDRC teams during 2010-2015, before moving to New Zealand where he completed a Bachelor of Sport and Recreation (Coaching). Jordan also represented the Sydney Stars in the National Rugby Competition in Australia.
Whilst in New Zealand, Jordan gained a plethora of experience as a Performance Analyst for both Auckland and North Harbour Rugby in the Mitre 10 and Coaching roles with Northshore Rugby Club (Premier 1) and Takapuna Gramma School. Before returning home to Australia in late 2020, he was also in charge of the National Age Group Coach Development for New Zealand Rugby League.
More recently Jordan headed the Junior Accelerated and Emerging Development Squads at SDRC which were a resounding success. Vice President of the SRA, Marcus Carbone said:
“Very similar to the way Jordy played, his coaching style is calm, direct and calculated. He commands a great deal of respect from the kids in the program which is often hard when dealing with teenagers. When he speaks, they listen. He has done an amazing job with the program and the kids have benefited immensely from his knowledge and experience. They were very fortunate to have him.”
