This week London Scottish held a three day Summer Rugby Camp targeting young children on their summer holidays just before they return back to school.
After a successful camp, the London Scottish Community team are already starting preparations for the next Camp in October!
Looking back at how successful the camp was the coaches involved can be very proud, attendees doubled from the start of the week, which is testament to how much the kids involved enjoyed their week on the Richmond pitches.
With the support of London Scottish Apprentice Calum Digby and London Scottish minis coach Jack Littlefair, Andrew Evans, the new Community Manager, had planned some quality activities for the participants in the August Camp.
As well as building on the long standing Key National Themes (KNTâ€;™s) to help the kids prepare for the start of the minis season on the 3rd of September, participants also had the opportunity to test their creative abilities against London Scottish first team players Isaac Miller and Rob Stevenson, who showed they were as capable with the crayons as they are with a rugby ball.
Coaches also focused on developing the kids as individuals ensuring that the values of rugby were upheld throughout the week, whether that was ensuring that the lunch area was cleaned after use by or working as a team out on the playing field.
All in all, a very successful Rugby camp. The new and improved London Scottish Community Team will be looking to better this effort at the next rugby camp in October.
All the kids who participated should be very proud of themselves and continue the rest of the season as they have begun!
