Northampton Saints half-term camps: Additional information
Children aged 6-16 will get the chance to get a feel for what it is like to be part of a Gallagher Premiership club.
Inspired by Saints’ desire to encourage and develop young talent, our coaches have developed a suitable programme to continually challenge young people and give them a worthwhile rugby experience.
Children will get the chance to develop their understanding of the game through a variety of activities and game situations, focusing on body management, tackle technique (U9+), fundamentals of rugby (including catch/pass, agility and kicking), decision-making in attack, go forward, defensive resilience, and creative play.
Training is structured into two sessions throughout the day with specific outcomes agreed by coaches. Lunch will run from 12:00-1:15pm and will include a lunchtime activity. Saints Community strive to help all participants reach their full potential, no matter if they have played rugby before or not.
As part of the camp, all children will receive:
- Water bottle
- Drawstring bag
- Camp certificate
- 10% Saints Store discount (when presenting certificate)
