TACKLE Rugby - Stirling County RFC


TACKLE Rugby Summer 2023 – Developing the person to develop the player

Introducing, Summer Tackle Rugby

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 P4 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 Summer, we wanted to expand our normal offerings and include a Springtime camp, with rugby opportunities for girls and boys from P4 to U14s.

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 Summer 2022: Developing the person to develop the player*

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 work on basic nutrition. Players will be taught skills in line with their age group Age Grade Law Variations. They will have the opportunity to delve into the technical details of specific positional skills across the week as an introduction to these elements. We will also be teaching them physical literacy skills, learning movement skills and developing physical confidence.

U13-U14: As with P4-P7 with an introduction to strength & conditioning training both on and off-field. An introduction to imagery training in a rugby context. Working on position specific rugby skills that are appropriate across all players. They will also receive tactical introductions in line with their age and stage of development that will serve as a foundation for both their season ahead and future seasons. 

* Programme may be subject to change

The camp will run 10am – 3pm each day on 17th July – 21st July & 7th – 11th August.

Regular camp activities will run from 10am to 3pm with drop off and pick up from 9:45am and 3:15pm respectively. Lunch and snacks to be brought by players. Whilst the content of each day complements each other, participants will not lose out through not attending all days.

If cost is a barrier, please do not hesitate to get in touch (tacklerugby@outlook.com) and we can take individual circumstances into account.

Players do not need to be Stirling County RFC members to attend, indeed we welcome players from all schools and clubs to join us for some rugby fun!!
