Skills Academy

Rosslyn Park Mini and Youth Academy Training Sessions 2017

About the Free Skills Academy

Rosslyn Park has set aside a valuable rental slot on the new artificial pitch to allow the younger sections of the club and the local community to benefit from professional coaching in key skills.

The Skills Academy is run by members of the 1st XV squad on Tuesday evenings between 5.30 – 6.30PM

These sessions are free to all and are played under the Floodlights.

The aim is to allow players to benefit from the experience of current players without the perceived pressure of their school or club coaching staff assessing them during the session.

All players will be taken through some core strength and conditioning work at these sessions followed by a full warm-down.

You do not have to be a member of Rosslyn Park or be attached to any club at all. To get the most out of the sessions please arrive in good time and be changed and ready to go for 5:30pm.

Groups will be split by age bands.

Don’t forget your gum shields, scrum caps and enough base layers for evening training. Special note: Please make sure your boots aren’t covered in mud from the park or your school sports grounds.

Sessions to date have included

  • Working the Breakdown
  • Scrum Factory (Front row centric)
  • Continuity
  • Half-Backs / Back 3
  • Line-Outs & Kicking

Please help us spread the word

We are very keen to spread the word amongst our players and their friends. Parents please help us to do this by publicising to parents of players at the schools your children attend … better still, please download and print the flyer here and ask your school to display it on their sports notice board. Increasing the numbers will help us with our outreach programme and make the sessions even more worthwhile. Your assistance to help us publicise this would be greatly appreciated.
