Bristol Ladies Launch Second Girls Development Camp After Success In July

Bristol Ladies are excited to launch their next summer development camps in August after the positive reaction to their first camp in July.  

Last weekend saw the launch of Bristol Ladies Rugby Girls Development Camps, created in partnership with Breaking Boundaries.
A large group of U15s from across the South West descended on the Portway Rugby Development Centre for two action packed days, led by a top class coaching team.
 
The programme included sessions on strength and conditioning, nutrition and position specific skills master classes, whilst developing their teamwork and communication skills.
 
Coaches included England World Cup winners Amber Reed and Sarah Hunter, Wales Captain Rachel Taylor and England stars Nolli Waterman and Katie Mason, who, alongside coaches from Bristol Ladies Rugby, put the girls through their paces.
 
Cleve Rugby U15 Florence Long took part in the camp,  "I really enjoyed the weekend because I learnt a lot about nutrition which I haven’t been taught about before. It was also great to have such experienced players coaching us through some new drills that I haven’t done before, and I’m certain it will help me in my future rugby career."
 
Pete Reakes, Squad Co-Ordinator says working with local girls like Florence is vital for the womens’ game.
"Our camp was developed to offer girls the chance to improve their skills and knowledge over the summer. There are some great clubs across the South West with girls sides, who do a fantastic job of motivating and training the growing crop of U18s talent. Our camps give the future stars the chance to meet their role models and expand their knowledge in areas such as nutrition and strength and conditioning"
 
The Development Camps are product of a collaboration between Bristol Ladies Rugby and Breaking Boundaries, with the aim of strengthening the talent in the girls game across the UK, and encouraging more girls to participate in rugby from an early age. The number of girls playing rugby in the UK is rising rapidly, and the need for top quality information and advice has never been so important.
The next camp is for U13s on Monday, August 17th. Followed by our U18s two-day camp on August, 18th and 19th.
