Hundreds of young players are improving their skills with the help of Leicester Tigers coaches on the club's summer Rugby Courses.

The sun has come out this week to greet the players on courses at Trent College in Nottingham, Swaffham RFC and Guernsey Rugby Academy.

Tigers coaches will be at Diss RFC in Norfolk, Stamford School and Lichfield RFC next week – and there is still time to book a place by clicking here or calling the community team on 0844 856 1880.

Tigers Rugby Courses are supported by energy efficiency specialists Mark Group, and the packed programme continues throughout the summer.

Tigers will be holding camps right across the Tigers region including at Lutterworth, Kesteven, Market Harborough, Market Rasen & Louth, North Walsham, Jersey, Leamington and Leicester Forest rugby clubs as well as Solihull School.

Tigers will also be running a residential camp at Bishop Burton College for the third successive year, which is due to be attended by the Tigers Academy. A full list of camps is available by clicking here

Scott Clarke, Tigers community manager, said: “Tigers Rugby Courses are a great a great opportunity for young players to work with some of the best coaches in the country to really improve their game and maximise their potential.”

If you're aged between nine and 16 and playing contact rugby then a Tigers Rugby Course is for you. Receive top-class coaching from former Tigers captain Ian 'Dosser' Smith, double Heineken Cup winner Glenn Gelderbloom and former Tigers hooker Troy Thacker.

The courses run closely to the Tigers Academy and youth rugby programme with a focus on the catch and pass, tackle, breakdown and support and evasion. Every player who attends a course will receive a free ticket to an allocated Tigers first-team game at Welford Road. They will also receive a Tigers Rugby Course T-shirt, rugby ball and drinks bottle, free membership to the Junior Tigers Club and the Crusha Cru as well as a hot lunch (with the exception of the camp at Solihull School) and drinks each day.
