The Skill's Camp will teach the basics of Rugby which will also set a solid foundation for your child's future in all sports. We start with basic body positions, fundamental movements, and proper hand positions. We then progress through ball handling skills, positioning on both offense and defense, and proper passing techniques. The older age groups (11-14) progress their skills in learning lineouts, scrumming and the basics of kicking a rugby ball. All the skills and techniques that your child learns will culminate in a scored round-robin and set the foundation for their success during the 2019 Season starting in June.

The Tackle Techniques Camp teaches the basics of safe tackling, setting the foundation for your child to be both safe and successful in any future contact sport they may play. Techniques learned comprise of the following: learning proper body position, learning proper feet placement, learning correct head placement, and learning the art of correct wrapping of the tackled player. All these techniques can reduce the potential for injury and helps them to safely play contact sports. These key, fundamental, habits are what this program is designed to teach and having a sound foundation for correct tackle techniques early on, will help your child to succeed in the future.
