Performance Rugby with Peter Richards

Course Dates:

03 - 06 August 2020

For U15 & U16 Players Only (Years 10 & 11)

Fully Residential  – £495

We are delighted to welcome back Peter Richards as Head Coach of the 2020 programme.

Peter 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.   

The programme is designed to offer year 10 & 11 pupils an insight to the Elite game. Core skills performed under great fatigue and pressure in addition to tactical awareness, video analysis and position specific training will combine to offer the very best of development opportunities.

about peter richards

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.  Domestically Peter represented Wasps over 150 times winning the Premiership and Heineken Cups.

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.

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.


“Can I take this opportunity to pass on our sincere thanks to you and your team for a most fantastic few days in Sedbergh. The boys came back to the West Country buzzing. An extremely well organised camp. High quality with individual touches. Would highly recommend.“
