Bath Rugby Skills Clinics


The Bath Rugby skills clinics are lead by members of Bath Rugby's first team supported by Bath Rugby’s Community department. The clinics are designed to delve into specific rugby skills sets and explore how these can be applied in the game. The players will be share some of their own methods and techniques within the four clinics; Kicking, Passing, Tackle and Breakdown and Scrum.  Our Skills Clinic Series is designed to arm participants with knowledge, good practise and tools to allow them to take away and use to a continue to develop their skills in the game.

All clinics are open to boys and girls aged U13s - U18s.
