This camp is intended as two-fold: an introduction to rugby to new players and a reintroduction to rugby for experienced players. The program is intended to safely introduce new or inexperienced players to the game of rugby in a small group setting. There will be a low athlete to coach ratio throughout the week.
More experienced players will be challenged to improve their current level of play. Skill development will be organized by age, ability and gender where appropriate. Training focuses on general skills needed by all players while working with specialized positions. There will also be focus on team tactics, both on offence and defence.
Skills learned include: pass catch, Y-Lines, contact/breakdown, tackle set pieces, place kicking, etc.
Activities include: free swims at the uOttawa pool, a wide variety of skills and drills, flag rugby tournament, etc.
