Different kinds of rugby camps

Most rugby camps take place in the summer. There are, though, some indoor, winter rugby camps. Some of these camps specialize in rugby, while others offer rugby as one activity among others, either in a sports camp or a traditional camp (with lots of different kinds of activities).

What great rugby camps have to offer

They’ll also receive coaching from a trained professional, and practice specific drills. And of course, they’ll play on teams with other children, in games and friendly competitions.

If your child is older and at a higher level, they’ll receive more advanced instruction. In addition to group practices and drills, they’ll receive some one-on-one instruction to refine their skills and improve their conditioning. At this level, they’ll also take part in competitive rugby, where they play in high-level matches. They may also play in tournaments and compete for trophies and awards. This may be as part of a rugby league, either run by the camp itself, or by a separate camp or school organization.

The benefits of rugby camps

In camp your child will learn to play rugby, possibly at a high level, in a safe and supervised environment. They’ll also learn the rules, etiquette, terminology, and finer points of rugby. In addition, they’ll reap a number of other benefits, including:

  • Improved conditioning
  • Skills development
  • Competition suited to their level
  • Leadership and sportsmanship
  • Improved confidence
