Lions Sports Academy kicked off the New Year with a brilliant masterclass taking place at Chiswick Rugby Club. It was a great day and Chiswick's state of the art 4G pitch was a great asset to have in order to develop the basic skills of rugby. It was a great session and some exciting talent was on show from some of the U12s that took part.
The masterclass was run by Lions Coaches Joe Garner and Duncan Traynor and they certainly created a fun environment that allowed all the kids to learn and enhance their skills. There were a number of fun activities that took place throughout the masterclass including a kicking masterclass led by Duncan, forwards specialist drills run by Joe that involved providing the correct technique for rucking & jackling, as well as other drills that involved quick hands and passing.
Overall, it was a brilliant masterclass that covered the basics of rugby and also led to plenty of smiles and laughs being provided from all the kids.
Lions Sports Academy coach & Guildford 1st team captain Joe Garner said " It was fantastic to be working with a small concentrated group of kids, in which you can focus on developing specific skills and all kids showed a great enthusiasm to learn and get better. It was a great day and we certainly can't wait to see many, if not all of them, on our future camps or courses, with the next lot coming up in February"
