In 2021 & 22 our Outreach programme delivered Rugby and Hockey Camps at various grounds around the country and our residential courses based at Sedbergh School and Casterton Sedbergh Prep School saw over 1800 children attend one of our courses and we are delighted to say that Sedbergh Courses and The Magic Academy will once again be running a series of two-day Rugby & Hockey Camps over the October half-term. The Rugby Camp will be held at Harrogate Rugby and Macclesfield Rugby clubs with the Hockey being held at Sedbergh Prep & Preston Hockey Club. Russell Earnshaw from The Magic Academy will be joined by Graham Higginbotham and Sedbergh's Simon Verbickas as the Rugby Coaches and Beckie Middleton will be joined by our very own Nick Davey & Rupert Bunday for Hockey.

Developing better contact skills, becoming more tactically aware (#BeatTheGame) and in general becoming a more skilful player will occupy the curriculum of the course. Working under the guidelines of the RFU and England Hockey 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.

a messsage from marcus smith

“Rusty is one of the only coaches who enabled me to play freely and express myself on the pitch. The freedom he gave me and my teammates made us problem solve on the pitch with limited coach interference. In addition, he’s always available 24/7 to chat about anything from personal stuff to rugby, he’s very approachable and easy to talk to. He has helped me massively to date with my career” (Marcus Smith, Quins and England)

"My son thoroughly enjoyed his two days with you, he has been to many rugby camps in the past but said that this one was the best by far! He loved all the different activities and games and thought the coaches were brilliant. He said that his legs need a rest today but that he'd do the camp all over again tomorrow if he could, he had such a fantastic time."

"I wanted to say how much our son enjoyed your camp at Lymm over Easter. By far the best rugby camp he’d been to and obviously loved being on home turf."

Lymm RFC's Rugby Camp  -  Parent

"Just wanted to drop you a quick message to say how much my lads enjoyed the two day course, they have come back today buzzing about it!"

Bowdon RUFC's Rugby Camp  -  Parent

"The experience I saw “my” players having today was exceptional! I came home with a smile on my face a mile wide! Coaching how it should be done, players engaged and smiling, not a raised voice but a culture of fun to get the best from the guys!The fact that every child had a voice and a valid opinion is testament to the mutual respect from players and coaches. Players were encouraged to have input whilst the coaches encouraged even the meekest to pipe up with their thoughts. A fabulous example of youth coaching from the very top draw. Your team is of the highest calibre and I think it was a privilege for Bowdon to host you."
