We are delighted to announce that, with the easing of national restrictions and a confirmed plan for the return to play in grassroots sports , Leicester Tigers plan to host a first Rugby Camp for more than a year during the Easter break.
Following guidelines from the government and RFU, Tigers have put together a series of two-hour coaching sessions over four days of the school holiday – Tuesday April 6 to Friday April 9 – get minis and junior players back on the grass, physically active and re-introduced to the game in a safe and progressive manner.
The coaching sessions will be run with under-9 to under-12 age groups each morning, with under-13-16 boys and under-15 and under-18 girls in the afternoon at the outstanding rugby-specific facilities of Brooksby Melton College, home of the Tigers’ nationally recognised ACE and Development rugby programmes.
Brooksby is situated on the Leicester to Melton Mowbray road (A607), just a five-minute drive from the A46 ring road on the outskirts of the city. It provides the perfect environment for a team of experienced Tigers coaches to deliver four days of fun, challenging and progressive ‘Ready4Rugby’ coaching activities which will set up young players to go back to playing the game as more restrictions ease.
Safety and enjoyment will be our primary concerns, as always, and we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure we can deliver a safe and positive re-introduction to rugby while still minimising any risks associated with the ongoing pandemic and the Covid virus.
Places will be limited to a maximum of 20 players per age group and places can be booked for single days or for all four days.
Players who attend on 1-3 days will also receive a Tigers Rugby Camp T-shirt, with four-day bookings also receiving a Tigers Rugby Ball as an additional bonus.
Tigers are also working on an extended programme for Rugby Camps during the summer period and look forward to meeting young players and their parents from all over the region, creating opportunities for all young Tigers to get back into the game and benefiting from quality coaching in a nurturing and positive environment.
Places will be made available to book online later this week via the Tigers website. In the meantime, you can register your interest by calling the ticket office on 0116 319 8888 (option 2) or email [email protected] and we will contact you when sales open.
