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.

Speaking to the local media this week ahead of the Bath Rugby game, Head Coach Laurie Fisher stressed that the fundamental shape of Gloucester's game is in good shape but that the Cherry and Whites have to look after the ball better and make more of their scoring opportunities.
Skipper for the day Willi Heinz faced the cameras after the 13-18 home loss to Newcastle and expressed real frustration at not being able to back up last week's win at Sale, calling it a performance he and his team-mates are not proud of.
Speaking after the game, Charlie Sharples described it as 'the win that has eluded us.' The winger stressed that Gloucester had stayed positive after the first couple of weeks of the Aviva Premiership season and the 26-13 victory over Sale was a result of that focus.
Gloucester Rugby picked up their first win of the new Aviva Premiership season on Friday night, easing to a 26-13 win on the road at Sale Sharks. Director of Rugby David Humphreys was full of praise for his players on the night.
It's a game of small margins at the highest level, and so it proved to be at Kingsholm on Saturday afternoon as two second-half Bath tries earned a 6-15 victory from a game which Gloucester had dominated for long periods.
Greig Laidlaw is back to skipper Gloucester Rugby in Saturday's Aviva Premiership derby game against Bath Rugby at Kingsholm. James Hook will make his first start of the season at full-back and Billy Twelvetrees will make his 100th competitive appearance for the club.
