A cracking Coaching Clinic last Friday morning saw a very enthusiastic group of 30 x U8/9/10s go through various games and activities at Hayle RFC. Cornish Pirates players Antonio Kiri Kiri and Marlen Walker were in attendance to pass on some expertise (especially the Rugby Dodgeball!).
Then, in the afternoon, players Antonio Kiri Kiri (again) and Maliq Holden led the games for 30 x U11/12/13s, which included an extremely competitive passing challenge!
Now looking forward to the summer, some exciting new programmes will be coming soon….alongside various other summer provision such as camps, coaching clinics and masterclasses.
Keep an eye out on Cornish Pirates in the Community Facebook page for more regular updates, whilst for the immediate present also remember to check the excellent progress being made by the ‘A Million Metres’ challenge team. For more details please link to:
