Ford drops in to kick-off summer rugby camps

Young rugby players from across Leicester have been getting stuck into the first summer Rugby Camp - and were treated to a special visit from England and Leicester Tigers fly-George Ford.

The 28-year-old dropped by the camp earlier this week to chat to youngsters, take their questions and watch the sessions held by the club's community development coaches. 

Held at Brooksby Melton College, the camps welcomed young rugby players to learn and develop their skills under the guidance of Tigers coaches and the programme includes core rugby camps (U9s +) and tag rugby camps (U7s-U8s).

Combining fitness, skill challenges and multi-sport disciplines, the groups have taken part in a five-day (core rugby) and three-day (tag rugby) programme topped off by the visit of Ford - keep an eye out later this week for our full video chatting to man himself. 

Emma Taylor, community rugby coach at Leicester Tigers, said: "We’re building their rugby skills by incorporating a multi-skilled element. Everyday we’re are focusing on an objective, and developing their skills with sports like football, basketball and American football - we even had an Olympic morning with a variety of sports!

"The kids are enjoying the variety of sports at the camp, everyday I can see their rugby skills improving, and friendships building within the Team. With further camps taking place throughout the summer, there's still time for youngsters to book on and join us."

Working closely through Premiership Rugby with the RFU, the club has also taken measures to create a Covid-safe environment which will follow the current guidelines and best practice where safety will be our paramount concern.  

All participants will be asked to complete a health declaration daily.
