Your News Rugby Coaching Day a huge success

Sir William Ramsay and High Crest School were both guests at High Wycombe RFU on Tuesday 11th November. Both schools were invited to attend a rugby coaching/education day to be held and run by some of the top coaches in the area.

Both schools took along their Year 8 rugby squads, Ramsay taking 19 and High Crest 14, showing the increasing number of pupils taking up the sport. The increased interest has led to many opportunities for the pupils of both schools as links are now stronger than ever with High Wycombe RFU and London Wasps.

The day began with a brief introduction of the clubhouse and the clubs history given by Head Coach Glenn Gavin. The pupils were engaged and clearly excited about the full day of rugby that lay ahead of them. Once out on the field the schools were split up and told to introduce themselves and shake hands which got rid of any awkwardness from the word go. They were then split into 3 different groups and the teams had 1 coach for every 5 pupils which enabled the pupils to be closely monitored and therefore the coaching became more focussed on individual needs.

The day ended with a competitive game which was refereed by Glenn Gavin. It was a closely fought contest but the scoreline was completely irrelevant. Everyone who attended the day went home knowing somebody who they had never met before and also had gained a greater knowledge and understanding of the game. There were a few injuries suffered on the day and Ramsay would like to wish their prop Jake Cockram a speedy recovery after breaking his collar bone whilst diving over the try line after a length of the field solo effort. He will be greatly missed by the Ramsay squad who will now have to travel to the Emerging Schools tournament without their most influential forward.

The day was however a huge success which is why both schools and High Wycombe RFU intend to make this an annual event. Both schools are currently planning for the Year 9 squads to visit before the Christmas break.
