Launceston Rugby Club's Camps prove a big success

Ben Hilton and Ryan Westren alongside a number of the camp participants

A hugely successful initiative took place at Launceston Rugby Club over the February half term with 143 places booked in across the 3 days, and many wanting to become the 'stars of the future'.
 
Quality Coaching and activity was co-ordinated by the Launceston Rugby Club Community Coaches and 1st xv players Ben Hilton and Ryan Westren, who were supported by club captain Tom Rawlings, and other 1st xv players such as Lewis Webb, Jake Murphy and Jason Luff, as well as Coach Ian Goldsmith and Physio Kylie Evans.
 
A range of activities were offered including ball skills, contact skills, team work, decision making and fun related activities such as tug of war. The camps were sponsored by Animus Consulting (Thanks to Tony Randel) who provided t shirts for each participant who took part in the camps.
 
This follows on from the camps we held last year and we are currently confirming our dates for our easter camps. This years success was highlighted with children travelling from as far as Redruth and Truro to come and learn from some high quality coaching and delivery. Many of our own Mini and Junior section attended the camps which is such good news for the future of the club. We will now look to make our easter camps even more of a success as we look to build for the future and raise awareness of the need to be physically active in the local community.
 
The community coaching scheme is part funded by the forward thinking Cornwall Sports Partnership and we are assisted by a grant from the Rugby Football Union.

Launceston Rugby Club is eager to hear from any company who may be interested in being associated in this exciting scheme bringing fitness related activity and health awareness to the community. Please contact the club on 01566 773406 for more details.
