With the school holidays now arrived, young rugby players aged from under 9s to under 13s are reminded that a fabulous ‘Coaching Clinic’ opportunity, provided by the Cornish Pirates, will take place at the Mennaye Field, Penzance, on Friday 17th August.
This should be a great occasion, a ‘Funtastic’ day with a super bonus included for those who attend, as in the evening the Cornish Pirates will be playing Premiership toppers Exeter Chiefs (ko 7.30pm).
Besides the Coaching Clinic (registration is at 5.30pm), this unique opportunity will enable the youngsters to have a Q&A session with the Pirates, form the Guard of Honour when the teams run out onto the pitch, plus play in the half-time rugby exhibition in front of a likely sell-out crowd. Photographs will be taken, with access to meet the star players and obtain autographs from both teams, on the field, post-match. Finally, the young rugby players will be given refreshments, plus other goodies.
The Clinic itself, though offering a modern, innovative coaching experience to develop the vital skills and techniques of rugby, is designed for all abilities. So, if you are new to the game or perhaps the next local talent, such as locally-bred England stars Jack Nowell and Luke Cowan-Dickie, there is something for you.
Importantly, the Core Values of Rugby (Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship) will also be emphasised throughout.
