Figure image
More than 50 years of coaching and playing experience will come together to lead the Leicester Tigers residential rugby camp at Bishop Burton College this summer.

George Chuter, Craig Newby and Ian ‘Dosser’ Smith are the head coaches on the five-day camp (August 18-22), which provides an outstanding opportunity for young and ambitious players who want to develop their game and spend a week as an elite rugby player. Spaces are limited and players are encouraged to book early to guarantee their place.
Chuter has won six league titles and is the second-highest appearance maker in Premiership Rugby history, ex-All Blacks back-rower Newby captained Tigers in the 2011 Aviva Premiership Grand Final while Smith is a former captain and coach of the club.
The coaches will tap into their vast knowledge and experience during a full week of coaching focussed on skill, game understanding and long-term athlete development.
The college's Centre for Sport & Fitness is the focal point of their Sports Village which will host the Rugby Camp and accommodate the players. Facilities include a state-of-the-art fitness suite, 4G artificial turf pitch, outdoor grass pitches and sports hall.
The camp is open to aspiring players aged from 12 to 17 on August 31. Participants can expect to be pushed to the limit and challenged at every opportunity. Tigers coaches will help young players progress and maximise their potential.
Players will be continually assessed and evaluated with player feedback provided at the end of the week. Click here for download our residential rugby camp brochure

The rest of this year's Rugby Camps programme, which is supported by energy efficiency specialists Mark Group, is taking shape, with masterclasses, tag and four and five-day events spread across the Tigers region featuring top-class coaching and a hot meal each day.
The summer kicks off with a first visit to Scotland. The GHA Rugby Club in Glasgow will host the Tigers during the week of June 30-July 4, with five full days of coaching for young players aged up to 16 plus a tag rugby version for three half-days for younger players.

Loretto School in Musselburgh, East Lothian, acts as host during the following week (July 7-11) and will also have a tag rugby camp for younger players over three half-days.

The club's community and Academy coaches are also running camps right across the Tigers region, including in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire and in the Channel Islands at Guernsey and Jersey rugby clubs.
