This Summer Yeovil Rugby Club hosts an Offload Rugby Camp. This is a 2 day camp open to all children within the local community aged 6-15. Offload Rugby camps coach through themes that support the current RFU principles of play via an array of conditioned, adaptive, and small-sided games. These are supported by skill zone activities to ensure children of all abilities are stretched, challenged, and supported to reach their potential. We also place a high emphasis on developing all the children as people and actively promote rugby’s core values of Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship, as set by the RFU. In addition to being a fun and exciting rugby camp, developing talent is one of the primary goals. Offload Rugby aims to provide all players the opportunity to develop their technical and tactical skills and game understanding, through an engaging coaching programme. All coaches hold a minimum RFU Level 2 coaching accreditation and have expertise from coaching in Premiership rugby programmes and academies, as Teachers, Directors of Rugby, and Sports Coaches within educational settings, or having coached at regional and/or county level.

On one of the days at camp there will be a visit from professional player Tom Dunn. Tom Dunn is an English professional rugby union footballer. He plays at hooker for Bath. In August 2017 Dunn was invited to a training camp with the senior England squad by Eddie Jones. In January 2018 he was named in England's squad for the 2018 Six Nations Championship. He was called up again for the 2020 Six Nations Championship. Children on camp will get the unique chance to receive skills coaching, hear about the professional player’s rugby journey and have the chance to ask questions, have a photo and get their kit signed, if they wish to do so.

Offload Rugby Camp takes place at Yeovil Rugby Club on Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th August, 9:00am – 3:00pm. If you would like to book a place on the camp please check out the link.
