With the support of St.George Bank, Queensland Rugby will be running a junior rugby coaching clinic for players aged six to 12 years-old at Stockland Park in June as part of a growing connection between the Queensland rugby communities.
The Sunshine Coast clinic is the first of five being run in 2012—along with clinics at the Gold Coast, Ballymor, and Darling Downs—aiming to help young rugby players increase their skills by undergoing a variety of fun rugby-based drills under the guidance of Queensland Rugby’s finest coaches and players.
The clinic will be run over two days with juniors in the six-nine year-old age groups on Monday 25 June, followed by those in the 10-12 age groups on Tuesday 26 June in order for every player to receive comprehensive and tailored coaching.
Each clinic runs from 9am-3pm and each participant will receive a membership pack on the day, including a t-shirt, rugby ball, bag, waterbottle, morning tea and lunch, as well as an opportunity to work closely with members of the St.George Queensland Reds squad.
“It’s a great opportunity for us to interact with young players getting involved in the game and teach them the skills that have helped us get to the top level of rugby,” Reds captain James Horwill said.
“It’s great to see all the junior players joining in with big smiles on their faces, but also learning a lot at the same time, so I definitely recommend coming down and giving it a go.”
“The kids always have a lot of fun on the day, but we probably enjoy it just as much.”
The cost of the clinic is $110 per participant and there are limited places available, so make sure to register as soon as possible to ensure a spot.
