The 2019 U SPORTS National bronze medalists, the women’s rugby varsity coaches and athletes will lead the instruction of this camp in a low athlete to coach ratio. This camp is intended as both an introduction for new players as well as a reintroduction to rugby for experienced players. Skill development will be organized in small groups by age, ability and gender where appropriate. Training will focus on general skills needed by all players while working in specialized positions. These skills include: pass-catch, Y-Lines, contact/breakdown, tackle, set piece, place kicking, etc.

Coaches:

  • Jen  Boyd, Head Coach uOttawa Gee-Gees/ Women’s U20 Canada Head Coach
  • Members of the uOttawa Gee-Gees

This camp is intended as two-fold: an introduction to rugby to new players and a re-introduction to rugby for experienced players in a small group setting. There will be a low athlete to coach ratio throughout the week, maximizing the time athletes have with their coaches.
More experienced players will be challenged to improve their current level of play. Skill development will be organized by age, ability and gender where appropriate. Training focuses on general skills needed by all players while working in specialized positions with a  focus on team tactics, both on offense and defense.
