Following a successful Easter programme of Premier rugby Academy camps, Saracens are pleased to announce our summer camp programme for 2014.
This summer sees Saracens put on over 15 camps at a number of our partner clubs and Allianz Park. The camps range from One Day Intensive Skills Clinics to Complete Skills Weeks and are created in conjuction with Saracens 1st team coaches to provide a totally inclusive skills programme. Content is based around the fundamentals of rugby including SAQ, handling, offloading, tackling/tagging, decision making and breakdown management. All sessions are planned and coached by Saracens award winning coaches and are all tailored to the age of the participants conforming to RFU guidelines.
We also look forward to the return of Cage Rugby onto our camps! Cage Rugby is played in an inflatable arena and concentrates in improving skill levels in a small area. It has given the participants a great opportunity to show off their abilities to the coaches in a frantic (but safe!) and pressured environment and unearthed some real talent with its introduction at Easter!!
The summer kicks off with our RAF residential course at RAF Halton. The course will provide a full programme of rugby coaching and RAF led personal development activities for four days all on site. Places are limited and almost sold out so don’t miss out book soon!!
This Summer also sees the return of both our Scrum Half and Kicking Clinics at Allianz Park. The Kicking Clinic gives an opportunity for all those budding Owen Farrells out there to develop all aspects of their kicking game including punting, drop-kicking and goal kicking; whilst the Scrum-Half Clinic will concentrate on the core skills of No.9 play including box kicking, passing and defence manipulation and engagement.
We also welcome the U9 & U10 Wolfpack Contact Clinics to the Saracens Camp programme. Designed in consultation with the pioneer of Saracens unrivalled defence, Paul Gustard, the courses will concentrate on the fundamentals of contact for those approaching contact for the first time in the U9 age group and rucking and breakdown work for the first time in the U10 age group for the 2014/15 season. Attendees will be taught the basics of the contact area with a professional approach to ensure performance in the safest of environments.
