Sedbergh Courses are delighted to be holding a four day Rugby Camp this June, in association with Club Alcobendas Rugby. The camp will be held at Las Terrazas, Calle Nardo, Alcobendas and will be led by Russell Earnshaw, from the Magic Academy, aided by Sedbergh's own Simon Verbickas and Graham Higginbotham, current Head Coach of Broughton Park Rugby Club.

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 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
