Nick’s course gives all participants a chance to further develop the tactical and technical awareness of Sevens and will also focus on the generic skill development for both forms of the game such as catching & passing, running lines, offloads, tackling and the breakdown area. As part of the education we will also emphasise leadership, creativity, resilience, independent thinking and the importance of team work as we passionately believe that these skills form the nucleus of all successful athletes.
This course is all about having lots of fun, learning, challenging the mind-set. As the players who have attended previous Easter courses have testified Nick is very approachable and knowledgeable and through his infectious personality builds a strong and positive rapport throughout the course with the whole group.
Sedbergh School has a serious national reputation when it comes to the rugby 7s season and our own Sedbergh School coaches will feature throughout the week to offer their expertise in support of Nick.
“Rugby 7s has grown to be one of the most popular sports in the world and it is easy to see why. Fast, creative and risk taking rugby resulting in an edge of your seat experience. It really is a brilliant game to develop every rugby players all round game and an alternative experience to the standard 15 a side style. I have thoroughly enjoyed the last two years on the Sedbergh 7s course, getting to know all the players and sharing my experiences with them throughout the course will hopefully result in inspiring them all to continue to play the game we know offers so much.”
