TACKLE Rugby 2021 – Developing the person to develop the player

Introducing, for summer 2021, expanded camps, now from P4 to U18, boys and girls!!

Stirling County RFC’s TACKLE Rugby camps are long established and have evolved over the past 6 years to offer a rugby experience open to girls and boys from U9s to U14s that covers all areas of rugby, from on field skills and abilities to off-field preparation examining areas such as nutrition, mental skills, and strength & conditioning with an emphasis on safe and most of all everyone involved enjoying their TACKLE Rugby experience.

For this coming summer we aim to take the challenges presented through this past year and flip them to a positive. After a lack of rugby for all our players over the past year we intend to expand our offering this summer with rugby opportunities for girls and boys all the way to U18. Whilst working within COVID guidelines from both Scottish Government and Scottish Rugby we aim to produce age specific, player centred safe & enjoyable programmes where young people will leave the camps feeling that they have both learned and achieved.

TACKLE Rugby Outline 2021: Developing the person to develop the player*

U9-U12 (P4-P7): Skills and fun games focus with learning activities around self-awareness as a person and rugby player, linked to basic goal setting, along with an introduction to basic nutrition.

U12-U14: As with U9-U12 with an introduction to strength & conditioning training both on and off-field. An introduction to imagery training in a rugby context. Work on position specific rugby skills that are appropriate across all players.

U15-U18: As with U12-U14 with an increased focus on strength & conditioning with players culminating with an individualised development plan. Greater focus on mental skills training, particularly in dealing with pressures and stresses around rugby. More in-depth and individual approach to nutrition. Looking at more position specific skills as players are beginning to specialise to a greater degree. Developing players tactical understanding through on pitch and video analysis work.
