After the success of the Easter Rugby Camps Gloucester Rugby Community Department are delighted to announce that on 18th, 19th August, we will be hosting another junior rugby camp at Hartpury College.
The two day camp which will be delivered by our highly qualified Gloucester coaches will focus on basic skill development, using the most up to date coaching and delivery techniques in line with the RFU continuum.
Our experienced coaches will provide a fun and friendly atmosphere, where aspiring young rugby players will have the chance to practice and develop existing rugby skills, as well as learn some new ones.
Each young rugby player will benefit from, and receive bespoke coaching tutorage and individual feedback by Gloucester Rugby coaches.
The rugby camp is open to boys and girls aged between 8 and 13yrs, and basic rugby knowledge is encouraged but not essential.
Participants of the camp will get the opportunity to practice their new rugby skills alongside players from a variety of rugby clubs from around Gloucester town and county, as well as other surrounding regions, making the camps a great opportunity to make new friends with players from other rugby clubs, instilling the RFU core values of the game, teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline, and sportsmanship over the course of the two days.
Like all Gloucester Junior rugby camps each young player will get the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of Gloucester's up and coming academy stars and (depending on availability) senior players.
Gloucester rugby half term camp places are limited, so don't miss out, book now!
