COURSE DATES 2019
29 JULY-1 AUGUST – FULLY BOOKED (RESERVE LIST ONLY)
FOR U15 & U16 RUGBY PLAYERS
FULLY RESIDENTIAL – £479
Following the success of our 2018 Elite course with Bryan Redpath we are delighted to welcome Peter Richards as Head Coach of the 2019 programme. Peter Richards will be supporting the players to further develop their all round game as well as inspiring them ahead of the upcoming season.
Players will be challenged technically, tactically and mentally ensuring all finish the course fully prepared for the next stage of their rugby journey. Preparation, resilience and remaining calm in high pressured environments are all key attributes in any aspiring young athlete and will be at the core of the curriculum.
Winning England 7s titles and representing the full England side in the Rugby World Cup final are just two examples from Peter’s career that he will use to inspire the Elite 16 rugby squad.
As a player Peter had the skill set to play in a variety of positions (scrum half, fly half and centre) which led to him initially being capped for England 7s winning Hong Kong, London and Dubai where he was named Player of the Tournament.
Domestically Peter represented Wasps over 150 times winning the Premiership and Heineken Cup. During the peak of his career Peter represented England at the 2007 Rugby World Cup narrowly losing to a strong South African side in the final.
Post retirement Peter’s love of the game continued and a career in coaching blossomed as Academy Director for London Irish before moving on as Head Coach of London Scottish.
Supporting the Elite 16 programme will be the very highly regarded Peter Coke. Peter has previously coached England Under 16s forwards, Wasps Academy Coach and is currently a senior coach at our own school, Sedbergh.
