Amazing opportunity for rugby mad girls!
This August, grab the opportunity to train with England Rugby world cup winner Rachael Burford, who will be coaching her Summer Rugby Day Camps for girls in Kent, Surrey and Sussex/Hampshire. The Burford Academy camps are aimed at girls of all levels of skill and experience between the ages of 7-18. Attendees have the opportunity to build new friendships whilst developing their skills and confidence both on and off the pitch, all under the guidance of some of the nation’s top female international Rugby players.
Rachael, who has become one of the first women in English history to become a full time professional rugby player, will deliver these camps personally alongside her team of experienced coaches. Guest appearances from fellow international players are to include the likes of Katy Daley Mclean (England No:10), Nolli Waterman – (Formerly England No:15), Rocky Clark (England No:1) and Fran Matthews (Formerly England No:14).
This Summer’s camps will be held as follows:
Surrey – 13th August Old Surbitonians Memorial Ground
Sussex and Hampshire – 15th August Hove Recreation Ground
Kent – 20th August at St Marks Recreation Ground
There are only 25 places in each age group so if you want to get muddy with the champions this Summer, book your space up now via https://www.burford12.co.uk/academy-camps.html
In Rachael’s own words, founding TWELVE (https://www.burford12.co.uk) and the BURFORD ACADEMY is her attempt to give back to a game that has given her so much over the years. Inspiring others (especially the next generation) to not only fall in love with the sport she holds dear, but to learn from her unique insight into teamwork, achievement, and the value of pursuing one’s dreams.
(We will be at the Kent rugby camp. We can’t wait to get down and support the future of women’s rugby! let us know if you will be there?)
