Live like a pro with Tigers residential rugby camp

This summer join Tigers coaches at the club’s annual residential rugby camp at Bishop Burton College for a week-long training camp to develop your game.
 
Taking place at the Humberside college, young players between under-13 and under-18 age groups are invited to take on the clubs elite rugby training programme and experience what it takes to make it as a rugby player. 
 
Build your knowledge on specific areas of the games with our skills coaches and take part in up to five hours of training each day, including an insight into strength and conditioning sessions. 
 
The residential camp includes six days away from August 19 -24 at Bishop Burton college taking advantage of the sports-specific facilities and boarding accommodation. 
 
We caught up with our work experience intern Joe Collier, 16 from Loughborough who first went on a Tigers residential rugby camp a few years ago. 
 
“I was at Loughborough rugby club when I first went on a residential camp and it was such an exciting experience as a young 12 year old”, Joe said.
 
“It was one of my first trips away from home without family, so it was quite nerve-racking as the group all got the bus up together. But I soon made friends and we became a close-knit group after the week-long programme.”

“It taught me a lot about discipline and working together as a unit. Everything from eating together to training and socialising together gave a real insight into the lifestyle of a professional. It was hugely inspiring.

“By the end of the week, I could see the improvements in my game and we would switch between skills and fitness so there was a lot I took away to show team mates at my club. I was definitely pushed by the coaches who were hugely supportive and I’d recommend it to any young player.”

  • Three hot meals per day and accommodation in individual rooms with private toilet and shower facilities.
