Sports Coaching Camps

During the summer holidays we run specialist coaching courses in various sports including rugby, tennis, rowing, sailing and a multi sport course where there are a variety of sports to try include hockey, rugby, cricket, climbing, canoeing, swimming and football. These courses are run by professional coaches and the course content will cover a wide range of aspects from skills to sport nutrition. The coaching camps are open to everyone on a first-come-first-served basis.
