To kick-start the summer holidays, our Rugby Skills Camp took place last week, led by Premiership Rugby Club Wasps. The camp comprised of children who currently play or are aspiring to play at first-team level at their school or club.
The high-quality coaching sessions were run by Wasps Community coaching team:
- Dom Owen – Hitz Officer
- Julius Hunt – Community Rugby Coach
- Dan Pearson – Rugby Development Officer (Bucks)
- Jack Hill – Rugby Development Officer (Oxon)
- Jodie Loughran – Physio
Throughout the 5-day camp, participants developed core skills such as catch and pass, tackle, breakdown, support, back play and set-piece play. In addition, they took part in injury prevention warm-ups, nutrition advice, strength and conditioning training and recovery pool sessions. It was clear that even in the challenging heat during the first few days, everybody had lots of fun and displayed effort and enthusiasm throughout an action-packed week.
