Bedford Blues Community Rugby are delighted to announce details on a special one-day Christmas Rugby Camp to be held on Wednesday 21st December at Goldington Road.

The festive camp, ‘Train like a Blue’, is open to players of ages 10-18 of all abilities and will give a unique insight for youngsters who aspire to be Blues stars of the future. Open to both boys and girls, the camp is the perfect early Christmas present.

Youngsters will be able to train as professional rugby players, while also being put through their paces with a variety of drills including core skills, evasion tactics, strength and conditioning, nutritional advice and fun-packed games all under the close tutelage of experienced players and coaches.

The rugby camp will take place between 10am – 3pm on Wednesday 21st December at a cost of £25.00 per attendee.

Speaking about the ‘Train Like a Blue’ camp, Head of Community Ben Gulliver, said: “Following on from our previous two camps we thought we would offer a genuine insight into life as a Bedford Blues player. With Christmas fast approaching the idea this special one-day camp is guaranteed to be lots of fun for the youngsters of Bedfordshire.

“We are also aware that with an unusual full week off before Christmas Day for pupils, the camp will hopefully break the week up nicely for parents and children alike.  The day will consist of many different sections with the support of S&C Coach Andrew Petts and a few Blues first team players, giving 10-18 year-olds a real taste of the Blues environment as well as developing their rugby skills and knowledge.”

Participants will need rugby training kit, a packed lunch and a water bottle (which can be topped up throughout the day).
