The Elite Insurance Academies include skills, drills, competitions and loads of fun, all tailored to the individual age groups and delivered by our fully qualified coaches! Participants could also receive coaching from some of the Saints’ professional players, and there is also the possibility of getting spotted by a member of our Academy coaching staff, too!
U7/8 children will hone their skills in tag rugby, the non-contact version of the sport. U9 and older children are separated into individual age groups and will be coached on: running and handling skills; tackling, contact and breakdown areas; support play and game shape; defensive work and alignments; overall game management; other areas as required.
All participants will receive a special Saints t-shirt and other goodies, with awards handed out to teams and individuals.
All bookings are subject to a £2.50 administration charge; group bookings (i.e. two or more participants) will only be charged one booking fee.
All participants will require the following – rugby kit (suitable for the weather conditions), rugby or football boots, a change of clothes and footwear for possible indoor sessions, drinks and a packed lunch.
