Sedbergh Courses are delighted to be returning to Abu Dhabi for the February Rugby and Netball courses, in association with The Harlequins and Capital Netball. The two day courses will be held at Zayad Sports City and the Sheik Zayad Cricket Stadium. The Rugby courses will once again be led by Russell Earnshaw, from the Magic Academy, aided by our own Jason Duffy and Simon Verbickas and the Netball course will be led by Jacklyn Leach, Sedbergh's Director of Netball.

Developing better contact skills, becoming more tactically aware (#BeatTheGame) and in general becoming a more skillful player will occupy the curriculum of the course. Working under the guidelines of the RFU and England Netball they will be looking to develop technical skills and tactical awareness. Each day will be divided in to four quarters where we will play lots of different games and break some skills down in a "skill zone" area to develop a framework for all children to reference in the future.

 If you have any questions at all please contact [email protected] for further information



All bookings are covered by our Covid Guarantee:- Should the courses be cancelled due to Covid-19 then you may either choose to have a full refund, or a future course to the same value.
