23rd May 2016

A popular rugby sevens coaching camp will return this summer to Rydal Penrhos.

Next Generation Sevens have once again been confirmed at the school for the two-day event, which will take place from Tuesday, August 16 to Wednesday 17.

Both days will be available for under 12 and 15 players, and it will give budding sevens players the chance to develop their skills under top international coaches.

The school held a similar three-day camp in February, which featured former Wales and British Lions star Andy Powell as a coach, in addition to ex-Sale Shark Nick Wakley and Samurai Sevens international Jonathan Hooper.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Next Generation Sevens back to Rydal Penrhos this summer, and it promises to be another tremendous opportunity for young players to learn from some of the very best coaches in the business.

“Our camp over February half term proved to be very successful, with players from as far away as Scotland attending, and we hope that this camp will prove just as beneficial for those looking to improve their game.

“There have been no confirmed coaches as yet but Next Gen are guaranteed to be sending some top class individuals at the top of their profession to Rydal Penrhos, and we are looking forward to revealing more in due course.

“Gaining experience in sevens is a huge asset to have in a player’s development at a young age, and since it was awarded Olympic status the profile of the game has raised considerably.”

Details on how to book onto the coaching camp will be revealed in the near future.
