Please read our frequently asked questions and answers below or for anything we haven’t covered call our team on 0116 319 8888 (option 2).

What is a Rugby Camp?

The week is pre-designed by our professional coaches so the players can experience an environment which is similar to a professional player environment, not only playing rugby but learning the extended topics around the sport. 

Who goes on your Rugby Camps?

Rugby camps attract boys and girls from all walks of life, some with playing experience, some have never played.

What age group is my child in?

The RFU age grade season runs from September 1st 2021 to August 31st 2022. Players will therefore remain in their current age group for all rugby camps up until September 1st 2022. For example, if a player is currently in the under-8 age group (in Year 3), they will remain in the under-8 age group until September 1st 2022.

What rugby content will be covered at each camp?

Our camps aim to provide something for those at all levels. Our camps for younger age groups provide a great introduction to rugby. Camps for older age groups provide a fantastic opportunity to develop on key skills and understanding of the game. For more details about a typical day on each camp, check out each camp in our Rugby camps brochure or on the website.

What about contact?

From U9’s and above, we begin to introduce young players to the contact-based games and technical skill breakdowns within managed sessions, that we believe are important for each player to develop their own awareness, understanding and decision making abilities. Exercises such as tackle techniques, wrestling techniques and a player’s bodyshape at the breakdown are important skills that introduce and prepare young players for contact, before implementing in game-based scenarios.

Where do I drop off and pick up my child?

Look out for the Tigers banner outside the venue. When you arrive there will be signs for the registration desk where you can sign in your player. No child can leave the camp without being signed out by a parent or previously agreed adult.

What time should I drop off/pick up my child at a rugby camp?

  • Core Camp (Full Camp): 9:30am - 3:30pm
  • TAG Camp: 9:30am - 12:30pm
  • Development Camp: 1pm - 3:30pm
  • Girls Camp: 9:30am - 3:30pm

Please ensure your child is handed over and registered to one of our coaches at the camp, before you leave. Please make collection prompt. Our coaches take no responsibility for children outside of these hours.

Will you provide lunch for my child?

Lunch is not provided at these camps. Please make sure your child brings a packed lunch and a refillable water bottle. Children can bring their own healthy snacks and other drinks.

What should my child wear?

Rugby kit, including waterproofs and a change of kit, gum shield, trainers and boots.

Will you provide drinks and snacks?

Water will be provided to refill water bottles. Children can bring their own healthy snacks and other drinks.
