Figure image
Young players from across the country have the opportunity to work on their rugby skills on a Leicester Tigers Matchday Coaching Clinic and there are now only four opportunities left in the regular season to follow them.On Saturday, Tigers welcomed groups from Eccleshall, Market Bosworth and Melton Mowbray rugby clubs plus Arnold House School from London and Ashfield School in Nottinghamshire.   Based at the Oval Park training ground and Wyggeston Queen Elizabeth I College on Welford Road, Tigers Matchday Coaching The Clinics are supported by energy efficiency experts Mark Group and allow players to work on individual and team skills as well as the chance to meet a first-team player to hear about life as a professional player. Sessions can be tailored to cover a team’s specific requests too.   All groups then join a big Welford Road crowd for a big game.    Saturday’s groups even managed to follow in the stars' footsteps by having a team photo taken on the pitch at half-time with Tigers player Julian Salvi in front of a 22,000-strong crowd.   Melton Mowbray coach Mike Dickson said: “It’s the second time in about three months we’ve come to do this and more of the players wanted to come this time. The experience that the players get is fantastic, and it’s good for us coaches to have a professional look on everything.”    Deion Flock, coach with the Eccleshall under-7 and 8s, accompanied his club group and said: “It’s been a fantastic day. We had a good coaching session with the boys, they’ve had a lot of fun. The session teaches them new skills, builds the camaraderie and just lets them have fun.”   Places on Matchday Coaching Clinic are available now for remaining home fixtures.   Due to the high demand for tickets, Matchday Coaching Clinics are the only group deals available for the derby fixture between Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints on the last day of the regular season on Saturday, May 16 (3.30pm kick-off).   For more details, or to book your place, contact the group sales team at Tigers by phoning 0116 319 8888 (option 2). Or click here to find out more online.
