Gloucester, 11 September 2008 - Phil Vickery MBE, England rugby captain and London Wasps prop, has announced that his school of Autumn Junior Rugby classes will take place in Truro. Building on the recent success of the May and summer courses held in Gloucestershire, Phil is thrilled to be taking his rugby academy to his home county, to inspire and develop children’s enthusiasm for this popular sport. Through high energy, structured classes led by experienced RFU qualified coaches, and with the unique opportunity for children to meet iconic rugby stars, popularity for the 2 day holiday course is high. The course kicks off in half term week (October 28th - 29th) at Truro School.
The 2008 Phil Vickery Rugby Class provides in-depth coaching for boys between the ages of 9 to 16 on all aspects of the game - from warming up to decision making and positional skills, counter attacking, rucking in attack and defence.
“I am passionate that the energy and interest that so many youngsters have for rugby should be developed at the grassroots level whenever possible. It’s a great team sport that promotes discipline and fitness and our classes will give children a unique experience of the game that they won’t forget,” said Phil Vickery. “We need to see young talent coming up through the ranks and I am confident that the rugby class will go a long way to achieving this goal.” Born in Bude and starting his career playing for Bude and Redruth, Phil is delighted to be running his course in Cornwall.
Andy Hamilton, Phil Vickery’s Rugby Class Manager, said, “With Phil’s talent and experience as a professional player and national captain, these classes offer the ultimate rugby experience for youngsters in the county. Unlike other courses, we take an holistic approach and deliver coaching on weight training, sports psychology and nutrition – inspired and endorsed by our world class scrummager.”
“The classes are great value for money and give children an intensive and thorough understanding of the game whilst having fun and entertainment during the school holidays! A result for the kids and parents!” added Andy.
Phil Vickery Rugby Class sponsors include Construction Alliance Recruitment, Mitsubishi Motors, Raging Bull Clothing, Sony, Venture Portraits and Yorke Construction.
