Ateneo de Davao University swimming program head Rose Rodriguez is set to train a swim club in Uganda, South Africa.

The swimming coach is off to leave on June 4 and will instruct the swimming team for a year.

A veteran coach at 52, Rodriguez said she was hesitant to accept the job at first, but her passion for coaching and helping others prevailed. 

She stayed at the place for a month, from Feb. 23 to Mar. 23 of this year, to get acquainted with the swimmers and the people.

Rodriguez was a recipient of an international coaching course grant at Leipzig University, Germany, and a scholarship to train with American coaches at Jacksonville, Florida. She was also a member of the national swimming team coaching staff.
