"Harry, although not very confident in Rugby, had an amazing time. He was nervous on the first day but came out smiling, has learnt a lot and most of all had a really fun, exciting and busy time with you. All of the staff involved acted in a professional way, delivering a very high standard of teaching and skill to the children. Thank you, he will definitely be attending another camp."

Transition to Contact Course (TTC)  - Lions Transition to Contact works with players who are at verging on the cusp of contact Rugby and give them a smooth and safe transition from Tag Rugby to contact Rugby. The camp will teach every child how to tackle safely, how to take contact and also teach new and current rules of play which will be changing for all players going into player Under 9 Rugby.

"My Son took part in the 3 day Guildford Rugby Course U9s Transition to Contact Course.  He absolutely loved it!  Every day he came home exhausted but full of enthusiasm and buzzing!  The coaches were all very approachable, friendly and professional.  Brilliant with the kids and managed to pass on valuable knowledge and skills in a fun and safe way.
I asked Fraser what he wanted me to write and maybe something that could have been better.  He said "it was just fantastic and when can I go again!"  So all positive feedback from us and will get Fraser booked into the October camp ASAP."

Rucking & Mauling Course - The Lions Rucking and Mauling course works with players to develop their rucking and mauling. We have found the course to be most beneficial for Under 10 teams at the start of a new season. This course has also proven to be extremely beneficial at providing players and coaches with confidence in the lead up to the new season!

"Many thanks to you and your team last week.  The 3 day camp gave the U10s a significant kick start to learning Rucking, Mauling and Scrummaging, and made our first training session so much easier with a core of the year group understanding the fundamentals.  In some instances, the children professed to know the rules better than the coaches! Thanks also for allowing the 3 of us to shadow the coaching on the Friday.  A massive boost to our confidence."
