Summer Rugby Camp 2015

August 25th, 2015 Comments off

Wharfedale Rugby Club started the new season a little early last week, with their now annual Summer Rugby Camp. Eighty seven youngsters aged from five to twelve joined Hedley Verity, Director of the club’s Rugby Academy, and ten coaches which included, James Doherty, Captain of the 1st XV, and Phillip Woodhead and Tom Davidson – also from the first team.
Sponsored by the RFU ahead of September’s Rugby World Cup, all participants received a ‘Support England’ goody bag.
Hedley Verity commented, “It’s been a fantastic and fun two days focusing on best practice, and once again incredibly well supported. The Summer Camp is a great introduction for newcomers to the game, and also gets our established players back on track ahead of the season. We are grateful to the RFU for the goody bags which have been a great way of promoting the Rugby World Cup 2015 which kicks off at Twickenham on September 18.”
