Join us for our popular Strength and Conditioning Rugby Camp, crafted to nurture young talents, aiding them in refining their existing rugby skills while imparting injury prevention techniques for a safe and enjoyable rugby journey. This camp is comprehensive, covering fundamental aspects such as passing, catching, and kicking, as well as advanced gameplay strategies encompassing attack, defence, breakdowns, and evasion, all while ensuring a vibrant atmosphere of enjoyment.

The primary goal of this rugby camp is to instil in participants a drive for continuous self-improvement, both on and off the field. Through fostering teamwork, effective communication, leadership and resilience, the camp aspires to inspire young players to strive for excellence in all aspects of their lives.
