Girls set to take over The Stoop this weekend

AS PART OF OUR OCTOBER HALF TERM PROGRAMME WE ARE OFFERING A ONE DAY GIRLS ONLY CAMP FOR PLAYERS BETWEEN 11 AND 15-YEARS-OLD.

This is a great opportunity for players to learn new skills in environment that is focused on player development and meet other players from clubs around the South East.

During the day, the players will look at; handling, decision making, tackling and contact skills. In the latter part of the day they will get the opportunity to demonstrate their new skills in competitive matches. We are also pleased to announce Harlequins Ladies’ Holly Myers will be down to assist in the matches and give some valuable coaching points.

In the run up to the camp, we are running taster sessions in our Switch schools and clubs in our area. Our next available sessions are on the Sunday 1st October at Warlingham RFC and Wednesday 4th October at Chobham RFC, please email us here to attend.

On Wednesday 27th September we had our first girls trial session at Old Reigatians RFC. Despite the rain, there were more than 30 girls who came along from four local clubs.

The community coaches went through a variety of different fundamental rugby skills. This taster night’s focus was on tackle technique and decision making in open play, the girls rose to both the challenge of the new skills and the weather. The session was a great success with everyone going away having developed an aspect of the game, and learnt a little about what it’s like to play the Quins way.

My name is John ‘Max’ Maxwell and I am the MD of RuckinRugby, a website design and hosting company focused on all things Rugby. Rugby is a huge part of my life and after meeting Catherine Spencer some years ago, I became interested in the women’s game at the highest level.

The World Champion team of 2014 were something very special and I immediately became aware of how important our domestic game would become in maintaining the sort of national side that I, and many others love to watch. This inspired me to do whatever I can to promote Women’s Elite Rugby in England.
