GLOUCESTER Rugby's community department are running two coaching courses next month to give youngsters the chance to learn top tips from the stars.
If you have ever wanted to run like James Simpson-Daniel, kick like Ludovic Mercier or tackle like Phil Vickery, these two camps are the perfect thing for aspiring rugby players.
There will be specialist coaching available from members of Gloucester's first team squad and key advice and guidance from fully qualified coaches.
The first camp, for 8-11-year-olds, will be held at Oxstalls Community School on Monday, February 13 to Tuesday, February 14. Both start at 9am.
The second camp, for 12-15-year-olds, will also be held at the Community School on Thursday, February 16 to Friday, February 17 and will include nutrition, injury management and analysis.
"These are great courses to either introduce youngsters to the game or help develop young players from the best coaches available," said Gloucester's Community Development manager Gary Little.
"We are usually guaranteed a high uptake for these courses and they really are opportunities for youngsters not to miss. They will get the best coaching and advice available and they are also great fun."
The cost of the courses are £50 but Junior Crew Members receive a 10% discount (£45). For more information on the camps, please contact Gloucester's Community Department on 01452 300951 or email Paul Rudland or Gary Little firstname.lastname@example.org.
