Leicester Tigers coaches have travelled to the other side of the world to host five two-day camps in Japan for youngsters to develop their rugby skills.
Visiting Tokyo, Hiroshima, Yamaguchi and Kitakyushu, Tigers rugby camps will host more than 800 boys and girls aged between 7 – 16 years old.
From developing basic skills, to specialist drills, kids will take part in six sessions across the two-days in each of the cities as Tigers four-strong coaching team tour the country.
Scott Clarke, head of community and global partnerships, said: “Our Japan rugby camps are a continuation of our work in recent years to develop the Tigers brand and support the growth of rugby across the world.
“With the World Cup in Japan fast approaching, now is as important as ever to help grow interest and participation in the game and already Japan has a strong structure’s in place to support local development.
“We work closely with coaches and teachers sharing our knowledge and learning about the culture which has seen our rugby camps grow in popularity year on year.
“With global partners around the world, providing long-term world class coaching is hugely important as we develop our networks both on and off the pitch.”
Tigers head to partner clubs Dendermonde and Kuala Lumpur in April and coaches will also be visiting Italy in the summer.
