The season is finally here and we hope you are all enjoying being back at your local clubs, playing competitive rugby once again!
Bath Rugby coaches are back on the road once again for October half term and coming to a rugby club near you! A full half term of coaching activity has been planned across Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset ensuring that everybody has the chance to get involved.
Check out where your local club is... 🙌
Our October half term camps will provide fun and engaging coaching for any budding rugby player, in addition to the perfect introduction to rugby for any child looking to start playing.
For only £30 per day, your child will develop their confidence, decision-making, spatial awareness and overall understanding of the principles of the game.
Bath Rugby are also excited to announce we will now be including an Introduction to Strength and Conditioning within our camps, to help teach and develop new movements on and off the ball.
As well as our mixed camps, we are also continuing to deliver our female-only camps in collaboration with Bath Rugby Ladies. It was incredible to see how many girls attended the first few camps, with some serious talent on show - we can't wait to see this collaboration grow over time 🤲
This female-only camp will take place on Friday 29th October at the Rec, including access to the first-team Captain's Run.
These Camps will be for the U13 – U18 Age Grades and will take a similar approach to our mixed camps looking to develop Game understanding, Attack and Defence Skills and an Introduction to Strength and Conditioning.
The camps are designed for boys and girls of all abilities aged U7s - U16s.
Our camps comply with the RFU age grade regulations and are used to help develop participant’s confidence, decision making, game understanding and spatial awareness. Skills taught will consist mainly of handling, support and evasion skills
All participants will need to bring their own water-bottle, snacks and weather appropriate rugby clothing. This should include trainers and boots, shorts and tracksuit bottoms, warm tops, waterproof top and a warm hat (and change of clothes if the weather is wet).
A huge amount of work has gone into creating a safe coaching model during Covid-19 pandemic and we want to ensure every parent/guardian is comfortable with the measures that have been put in place.
Ahead of each camp, a health declaration will be sent to every participant who must confirm they are not displaying any COVID-19 symptoms prior to attending the coaching sessions.
Whilst your child has arrived at the session, we will follow the strict RFU and government protocol including cleaning of equipment, bubble size and social distancing measures (between the staff and children).
"A huge, big, thank you to the Bath Rugby Community coaches for putting on such an amazing half-term camp.
My child has not stopped going on about how much he enjoyed it! Not knowing any other children, he was a bit nervous, but the coaches made him feel very welcome, and after the first day, he loved it and came away learning lots.
I cannot recommend your rugby camps highly enough and encourage any kid with a passion for rugby to attend.”
Douglas Crane, father of camp participant
