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 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?

TAG Camp: 9:30am - 12:30pm

Core Camp (Full 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?

Core Camps (Full day camps): Hot lunch is normally provided, please see individual camp for details.

TAG camps: No lunch is provided.

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?

What about a FREE junior match ticket?
