The Saracens Rugby Camp Programme is aimed at U7 – U16 playing age groups and provides organised, educational, inclusive and structured activities, utilising our experienced, qualified and award winning coaches from the Saracens Community team.

During the Half Term holidays the Saracens Community staff will create a professional, safe and friendly environment in which players can enjoy their rugby development. The camps have been designed to provide young players with a total rugby experience, contributing to their personal development on and off the field. The Saracens coaches will instil some of the values that drive our professional players, urging young talent to play with passion and commitment, respect and discipline whilst working effectively as a team.

On all of our Half Term courses each participant will be given feedback, providing information on areas of the game on which our coaches feel they require further development. In addition to this positive reinforcement will be given to individuals who display strength in their technique and skill applications.
