You will develop skills in leadership, decision making and goal setting as well as creating a game plan that will suit the players around you.

GIRLS RUGBY CAMPS

Tailored to the Women’s game

Girls’ rugby has become one of the fastest growing sports in England, with over 26,000 women and girls now playing in over 300 rugby clubs. At Saracens we are fortunate to be inspired by the most successful Women’s club team in the country and some of the world’s best Women’s rugby players. Saracens Girls Rugby Camps are supported by Saracens Women as part of their quest to inspire more girls to pick up the rugby ball and enjoy this great game. Our camps will cater to all girls regardless of their experience or abilities – whether they are picking up a rugby ball for the very first time or looking to take their game to the next level. As well as focusing on developing the rugby specific skills that will help improve performance, these camps also explore the different journeys that female players might take to reach the heights of playing for Saracens in the future.

Kicking Clinics

Focus on specific skills

The Foundations of some of Saracens’ most memorable victories over recent seasons has been built on the clubs kicking strategy and the ability of our players to execute that strategy. Saracens Kicking Clinics provide some insight into the finer nuances of one of modern rugby’s most important skills. These one-day camps provide the opportunity to develop a range of kicking skills, including goal-kicking, touch-finders, cross-fields, up-and-unders, box kicking and more. If you want to goal-kick like Owen Farrell, kick the ball out of hand like Zoe Harrison or box kick like Aled Davies then get yourself booked on one of these clinics!

Half Back Clinics

For budding 9s and 10s

Half Backs are specialist positions that have a strong influence on the performance of any team, which has certainly been the case at Saracens with the likes of Owen Farrell, Zoe Harrison, Aled Davies and before him Richard Wigglesworth. Passing skills, kicking skills, decision making under pressure, communication and leadership skills are all required of the modern half back. The Saracens Half Back Clinics, run by specialist coaches, break down what it takes to be the most effective on-field general, whether you are an aspiring scrum-half or fly-half.

RUGBY CAMPS FAQS

WHAT CONTENT WILL BE COVERED ON THE CAMPS?

Our clinics aim to cover as wide a variety of skills as possible, whilst still allowing time to go into sufficient detail. Camps lasting multiple days will inevitably allow for greater depth, but single day camps still aim to provide a good variety. Participants can expect to cover catch & pass skills, tackling and contact techniques, go-forward & support in attack, defensive connectivity and more.

ARE THE TWO DAY CAMPS PROGRESSIVE?

CAN I BOOK JUST ONE DAY?

IS MY CHILD THE RIGHT AGE?

The majority of our camps are open to both boys and girls in the under-7 to under-12 age grades and boys only U13 to U15. Some specialist clinics extend to under-18. We do run separate camps for girls from U11’s – U18’s. If you are unsure which age grade your child is in, remember that your child will be two different ages in one school year (9 turning 10 in Year 5 for example). They are “under” whichever the biggest number (under-10). Easy!

WHAT AGE GROUP/ SEASON DO THE SUMMER CAMPS FALL IN TO?

The age grades for rugby change each year on 1st September – therefore the majority of summer camps fall into the current season/ school year unless the camp is held on 1st September onwards and then it will be for the year group/age grade the child is going in to.

DOES MY CHILD NEED TO BE A MEMBER OF THE CLUB HOSTING THE CAMP?

No. We encourage players from surrounding clubs and schools to attend camps at other Partner Clubs as well as their own to develop their skills with – and against – players that they don’t usually encounter at their regular club or school sessions.

ARE SARACENS CAMPS SUITABLE FOR LESS EXPERIENCED PLAYERS?

Absolutely. The majority of our camp participants play regularly, but our experienced coaching staff are aware that we cannot account for ability or experience of each group until they have been observed on the day. Less experienced players will be offered more support where needed; and more experienced players will be appropriately challenged.

IS LUNCH PROVIDED ON THE CAMP?

No – packed lunch, snacks and drinks will need to be brought with you. Please bring water in a clearly named Plastic Water bottle.

CAN I BOOK USING MY PHONE?

Yes you can however some networks are not compatible with our Sales Platform and we advise making bookings for camps using a PC, Laptop or Mac. The Participant Emergency Contact page often fails on a phone devices.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?

If a Participant withdraws after booking onto a course, Saracens reserves the right to withhold the full course fee. Any participant withdrawal made prior to 2 weeks before the start date of the event will have the option to a credit for use on a similar camp (subject to a price alteration – No refund will be made on a cheaper course). Any withdrawals made within the 2 weeks before the start date of the camp will not be refunded and there will not be an option to a credit for any reason.

Should the camp not go ahead and be cancelled by the organisation, then all participants will be refunded the monies paid within 30 days of the cancelled event.

Partners

On the evening of Wednesday 11th May, a host of Saracens Womens players will be descending on StoneX Stadium to take on the role of coach and give young players from the community the chance to learn from the very best.

The session is open to all players aged U11 – U18 and will provide an opportunity to work with players on a number of skill stations alongside Saracens’ award winning community coaches and high-profile Saracens players under the floodlights of StoneX Stadium on the 4G pitch!

The session will allow young players to train in a fun and enjoyable environment developing individual concepts such as catch & pass, evasion and game play.

The coaching session will be followed by an opportunity to collect autographs and mingle with the players responsible for some of the most expansive and entertaining rugby in the Allianz Premiership 15s.

OVERVIEW

The Saracens Players Coaching Event is Saracens’ most immersive coaching experience. The programme, following on from the mens event which is now in its eighth season, will look to provide a similar experience in this first event of its kind for the Womens Team at the club.

Saracens profile players are able to attend these evenings to pass on their expert coaching tips to young players across the community. The Saracens players will instil some of the values that drive them, urging young talent to work hard; play with honesty, humility and discipline whilst working together as a team.

Each child will receive their very own limited edition t-shirt to train in and the evening will conclude with an opportunity to collect autographs plus have photos taken with some of the biggest names in the Gallagher Premiership, most of whom are often unable to attend our traditional rugby camps programme.

SARACENS RESIDENTIAL RUGBY CAMP

Come and experience the life of a professional rugby player on our residential camp. For two days and one night you will eat, sleep, train, recover and abide by the Core Values in the same way as the Saracens first team do daily.

Throughout your time with some of our top coaches you will work on differing skills that will make you a more rounded player and give you the ability to view the game from different perspectives on the pitch. You will develop skills in leadership, decision making and goal setting as well as creating a game plan that will suit the players around you.

Outside of training the players will learn more about nutrition, the best ways to recover after rugby activity and what work is done away from the pitch in terms of preparation and analysis, all of which will help players achieve their goals set out with coaches throughout the camp.

Our coaches will each bring a range of skills all specialising in different areas of the game. Their knowledge will enable players to work on position specific skills, as well as giving them the opportunity to learn something new, including kicking, scrummaging and passing as well as the contact areas of the game.

Whilst at a Saracens Rugby Camp children will strive to adhere to our core values:

Discipline

We understand our role within the team and commit to be the best that we can be.

Honesty

We are honest with our self and help create a safe environment where others can give and receive honest feedback.

Work Rate

We work together as a team and always give 100%.

Humility

We are good losers as well as good winners and we treat everyone with respect.

There is both on-street and off-street cycle parking provided in the local area around the stadium.

TRAVELLING BY CAR

No parking
There is no parking available for general admission fans at the stadium.

The road closures also mean that, if you choose to travel by car, you will not be able to exit any car parking facility within the road closure area for one hour after the final whistle.
