During the Easter Holidays over 100 children took part in Yorkshire Carnegie Easter Camps held at Roundhegians and Old Brodleians rugby clubs.

The rugby camps offered the chance for attendees to further develop their skills under the guidance of the Community Coaches as well as Yorkshire Carnegie players Matt Smith and Tom Bullough.

The children at Roundhegians were also visited by Jack Whetton, Pete Lucock and Ross Graham who took part in a question and answer session with the group. They also offered playing tips as well as signing autographs and having their photos taken with the children.

Sam Kerry, Community coach said: “The attendees have been great across both of the camps and hopefully they have enjoyed it as much as the coaches. We have received some fantastic feedback from both children and parents and it was great to hear that they enjoyed the camps.

“It is important that we continue to engage with the children and further their rugby union education as they are hopefully the future of Yorkshire Carnegie”

The aim of the camps is to develop and improve the skills of the young rugby players with an emphasis on enjoyment in a safe and controlled environment.

Lisa McCann, Community Manager added: “The camps are a great opportunity for us to visit our clubs across the region and we would like to thank both Roundhegians and Old Brodleians for hosting us. Thanks must also go to the players for taking the time to come along to the camps.”
