Tom McKeown, School of Excellence Camp Manager added “The 2015 School of Excellence programme promises to be the best yet. We have taken on board the feedback of our players and set out to sustain our high standards of coaching along with a detailed, fun and valuable time off pitch. We feel the introduction of team building will ensure a closer bond between players and the sports psychology seminar will help players improve their mental approach to training as well as game preparation. We have reintroduced daily swimming pool recovery to ensure the players recuperate from the hectic on field sessions. The guest speakers will offer insight to performing at the top level of sport and the importance of marrying talent with a strong work ethic and attitude to improve. All in all we are offering the young player an opportunity to live and be coached like a pro rugby player for a week. The coaches and management are already excited to unearth the next professional rugby player through the School of Excellence”.
