The Harlequins Summer Camps have been developed for the 2017 Summer holidays and are suitable for young people aged 6-14 and available for all Rugby abilities. The camps structure and sessions have been developed with the Harlequins Academy to sit in line with the new age grade rugby rules of play, to ensure that the player’s wellbeing and enjoyment are our main focus. The sessions will be tailored to the specific needs of your child’s group, game related and player centred. These sessions will be delivered by our vastly experienced community coaches who all are minimum RFU level 2 qualified and hold a valid first aid certificate as well as a RFU DBS.

The camps provide the opportunity for young people to learn to Play the Harlequins Way. The Harlequins Way has been filtered down from our professional squad to our community coaches and allows us to deliver sessions using the same playing ethos: TRUE.
We play with Tempo, we’re Ruthless in every contest. Our game is Unpredictable. And, we Enjoy ourselves.

Tempo - This is learning to change the tempo of the game by either speeding it up or slowing it down depending on the situation, opposition and scenario.

Ruthless – This is making sure you come out on top by taking your chances, working together as a team and doing everything to the best of your ability.

Unpredictable – This is learning to play what you see and ensuring that you adapt your game to exploit the opposition’s weaknesses, as well as mixing your game up to keep the defence guessing.

Enjoyment – This is a vital strand of rugby which is about creating and building bonds with your team mates, and simply enjoying playing the game.

The content of the sessions will focus on the fundamentals of handling, creation, identification and execution of space, tackle technique, continuity in attack and defensive organisation. We believe that improving each individuals’ core skills and understanding of the game will allow them to develop as a rugby player and allow them to continue on their journey to reach their full potential.

As well as receiving expert coaching, all participants on our camp will receive a free Harlequins gift, discount on Big Game 10 tickets, a chance to win Harlequins prizes and an exclusive invitation to a Harlequins training session to meet the players.

A word from our parents:

“My child grew up in confidence and maturity by the end of the camp. He felt very good about himself at the end of each day. His interest and enjoyment for the game has become stronger by the end of the camp. Thanks see you next year.” – Summer 2016 Camp Parent

“Bertie was very nervous about coming as it was his first rugby camp but he absolutely loved every minute of the course. Many thanks to the team.” – Camp Parent
