Har­lequins on hand for train­ing

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Young­sters aged 11 - 18 got some hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence when top level rugby play­ers held coach­ing ses­sions at a sum­mer school.

Har­lequins, the Twick­en­ham-based premier league rugby club, held a train­ing camp at Sut­ton Va­lence School over the bank hol­i­day week­end, of­fer­ing four jam-packed days of fun.

Girls and boys not only learned tack­ling, ball han­dling, cre­ation and at­tack and de­fence tech­niques from the very best, but also gained the chance to make new friends and win some fan­tas­tic prizes.

Train­ing was tai­lored to all abil­i­ties and adopted the ‘Har­lequins Way’ ap­proach, which fo­cuses on the core val­ues of sports­man­ship, en­joy­ment and team spirit.

A Hero of the Week was cho­sen on the last day of the pro­gramme - the player judged to have the best spirit and most en­deav­our. The win­ner re­ceived a Har­lequins Com­mu­nity Mem­ber­ship for the 2018/19 sea­son, a pair of tick­ets to a match from ev­ery com­pe­ti­tion this pe­riod, along with the chance to meet play­ers, get signed shirts and be­hind-thescenes ac­cess.
