Perfect chance to try college rugby programme

Brooksby Melton College is hosting an Open Day and Taster Day next Saturday (June 22) to provide a perfect opportunity to find out more about studying and getting involved in the rugby programme there.

The Taster Day is designed to showcase facilities for anyone interested in studying Sport or Sport Science alongside participation in the development rugby academy run in association with Leicester Tigers, while Open Day provides a chance to find out more about a range of other academic subjects alongside rugby coaching and playing.

The BMC development team plays in college competitions while players receive up to eight hours of coaching/rugby a week.

During last season, the college celebrated international recognition for a number of players, including Tigers academy trio George Martin (England Under-18s), Alex Maxwell (Scotland Under-18s) and Leo Gilliland (Wales Under-18s). BMC captain Josh Brown was selected by England Counties and there were also call-ups at England Under-17 level and for players representing other countries including Italy, Hungary and Ukraine.

As part of Taster Day, there is a rugby session scheduled for 10.00am-12.00pm, while the rugby session for Open Day visitors is 12.00-1.00pm following opportunities to find out more about the college curriculum.

All prospective students who are interested in the rugby programme should meet at 9.30am at the Grafton building. Please bring indoor and outdoor kit.
