The Camp was created out of a need to provide intensive, high quality coaching to regional junior players wishing to learn and develop their skills in rugby union. There have been thousands of young boys and girls attend over the years, with over 98% satisfaction rating every year.
I must say that we loved it!!!! My son and I are still on a high and will return next year. The coaches were great, he learnt so much and it was all confidence building.
They [the coaches] were supportive and more than approachable for both the girls and parents watching. Very impressed by their dedication.
Great camp. Had a wonderful time and learnt a lot. Will be back next year!
We provide three different types of camps, depending on the camper's age in 2023 and gender. We have a 2-day camp for our younger campers, and 4-day camp for our older campers, with the choice of living in and living out. All options are open to boys and girls.
Parents are very welcome to spectate and chat with the coaches. We have many coaches thanks to our support from Australian Rugby, so parents are not required to stay and supervise their child, or required for the coaching.
* Accommodation is The Armidale School. Boys and girls are accommodated in separate buildings. Campers will stay is a dormitory-style accommodation.
The Camp benefits greatly by the support of the NSW Waratahs and their development officers. Our campers are taught exactly the same up-to-date strategies and techniques as the professional players. We also receive a couple of NSW Waratah celebrities each year.
*Paddy attended the National Rugby Camp in the early 2000's.
Since we started providing this Camp in 2000, there have been thousands of young boys and girls attend, with over 98% satisfaction rating every year.
We have an amazing coach to camper ratio, which allows us to provide immediate and specific feedback to players during the Camp.
Our maximum number of campers we can take each year. We are grateful to have achieved this the majority of times in the last 22 years, including the last 11 years.
Along with the coaching and a special experience, every camper gets a bag full of goodies.
