Train like a pro on residential rugby camp

Leicester Tigers' residential Rugby Camp is the closest young players can get to experience a week in the life of a professional player.

And there are  still places at annual summer camp at Bishop Burton College in East Riding, Yorkshire, which takes place from August 19 to 24.

The camp offers under-13 to under-18 players the opportunity to take part in a week of dedicated rugby training and activities.

Arriving on the Sunday, the groups will be immersed into an elite rugby training programme delivered by Tigers qualified coaches. 

Each day groups will take part in up to five hours of training which cover core skills and position-specific areas of the game.

Groups will also undergo strength and conditioning sessions in the college’s state of the art gym as well as learning about the importance of rehab and recovery.

Alongside the rugby, youngsters will also eat like the professionals with three specific hot meals per day as well as accommodation in individual rooms with private facilities. 

There will be evening entertainment and team building activities and each player will receive their own personal development plan to take away with them at the end of the training camp.

With prices starting from £475, youngsters will also be able to take away free Tigers goodies and a free ticket to Tigers' first home game of the 2018/19 Gallagher Premiership against Newcastle Falcons at Welford Road on September 8.

A travel package is also available at an additional cost of £35. This includes travel on Sunday, August 19 departing at 1.30pm from Wyggeston & Queen Elizabeth 1st College (LE1 7RJ) and returning back to the college car park at 4.00pm on Friday, August 24. 

All attendees will also be offered a free ticket to watch Leicester Tigers' pre-season fixture against London Irish upon their return to Leicester, with the August 24 fixture kicking off at 7.45pm. 

The camp is for aspiring rugby players who are between the ages of 12 and 17 on August 31, 2017. Book on Tigers residential training camp now at the link below.
