The first two weeks' events, at Ratcliffe College, Sutton Coldfield RFC and at Swaffham in Norfolk, have proved very popular, with youngsters enjoying a new element to Tigers Rugby Courses with the inclusion of some judo tuition led by coaches from the British Judo Association.
Judo instruction has become a part of the programme for Tigers' senior and Academy players in their training and now younger players are having a taste of the action on Tigers Rugby Courses.
"The first two weeks of the Rugby Courses have gone really well, the facilities have been excellent and we have had good groups of players and coaches," said Tigers' community manager Scott Clarke. "Now we are looking forward to the next few weeks with another full programme in a number of venues."
The coaching team will be travelling all over the region to schools and rugby clubs who are hosting Tigers courses. Young players will work with our community and academy coaches at courses lasting four or five days. Courses are suitable for all players aged 8-16. This year, Tigers are also running a girls' course (for age 14-17) alongside the mixed course at Sleaford RFC in August.
Hone your core rugby skills ready for next season and have some great fun at the same time on a Tigers Rugby Course. A limited number of places are still available. To book, log on to the website at www.leicestertigers.com/rugbycourses or call the community team on 0116 2171 221.
