Share
Sports Event


Our 3-day rugby camp will take place on 28th, 29th and 30th of August, and we are delighted to announce that we were able to recruit two exceptional coaches to lead the camp, Mr Matt Norman, and Mr Jack Nichols.

 

Introducing Mr Matt Norman

Matt played for Dings Crusaders and Bristol, Gloucestershire and the South West of England at U21 level, and currently plays for Dings RFC. He is a UKCC Level 3 coach and has completed a number of RFU run CPD’s to enhance his skills since he acquired his qualification. Matt has been coaching youth rugby teams, including Kingswood RFC girls U13 – U18, Bath DPP and Dings U16s, for the past 4 years, and is very passionate about helping players develop in a fun environment where they can explore different ways of problem-solving through games-based coaching.

 

Introducing Mr Jack Nichols

Jack has assisted on several coaching teams, including juniors’ and minis’ teams, and when he started his university career, he got a chance to work alongside the International 7s coach Chris Roberts, and Jack is still in regular contact with Chris in order to continue developing as a coach. In recent years Jack has liaised with and worked alongside RFU ambassadors to build and develop rugby programmes in schools in East Sussex. He has recently been employed as a teacher of Physical Education at Westonbirt School, and he is looking forward to helping build what he hopes will be a strong rugby culture at the school.

 

The camp marks the introduction of rugby to our sports offering, as part of the school’s shift to a co-educational offering in our Senior School. We are very excited to be welcoming 17 boys to our Year 7 next year, which is more than 40% of the total student number in that year group, and we are delighted to see that about 50% applications for a 2020/21 entry come from boys for Years 7, 8 and 9. With many teachers and support staff at Westonbirt being either active rugby players or rugby supporters, everyone is delighted about our new offering, and we are looking forward to an amazing academic year 2019/20!

 

The camp costs £100 for three days and is available to Year 5-6 students (U10-U11) and Year 7-8 students (U12-U13). Places are limited, therefore please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. To book a place, please visit: preseasonrugby.eventbrite.co.uk
