With school out for the week, children from across Devon and Cornwall took the opportunity to hone their rugby skills on the latest half-term camps run by the Exeter Chiefs Community department.
Held at Launceston Rugby Club and right here at Sandy Park, over 150 youngsters were put through their paces, learning not only the basic elements of the game, but at the same time improving their skill set in a range of activities and match-like scenarios.
Developed and designed by our team of professional coaches using the most up to date techniques, the camps offer young people the best possible experience and insight into the modern-day game.
Highlighting the work carried out, Chiefs’ Community coach, Richard Bright, said: “It’s been great to meet lots of new faces, as well as seeing a few old ones.
“The half-term camps offer the children a great opportunity to try and breakdown rugby’s fundamental skills, whilst at the same time ingrain some new ones into players for them to be able to use going in to next season.
“Fun is obviously paramount to us, but if we can teach someone a new skill that helps them in their rugby, then that’s the icing on the cake for us.”
