Cycling has for some time stood atop the British sporting podium. The exploits of Messrs Wiggins and Froome in Le Tour, coupled with that Herculean Olympic effort on home soil four years ago, built upon an already impressive pedigree to catapult cycling to the forefront of the nation’s sporting consciousness. No longer was it seen merely as a fashionable way to get around Cambridge; cycling became something that happened in a velodrome. It was pure, undiluted drama, it was the Knight and Dame-making showpiece of the Olympics, and it was undeniably ours to dominate..
Congratulations to Leicester City worthy champions of the Barclays Premier League; quite an incredible feat. To those in the know it is painted as a hitherto unrivalled feat of triumph against all the odds; a real-life David vs Goliath in which David’s hand-made, bodge-job slingshot has pierced the expensively assembled, diamanté-clad armour of the petrodollar-backed Goliath. In short, for those of us who have witnessed the time-honoured domination of the footballing elite on a weekly basis, the scale of Leicester’s achievement is obvious, in that it was completely an..

Over Easter half term Lions held a Football Development Course. Looking back over the course there were some great highlights to reflect on ... We witnessed some great players and skills, with the first day's subject being 'manipulation' this gave the players an opportunity to 'show boat' and show off their skills, in the 1v1 games and tournaments. Over the course of the 3 days we had a different topic each day, with the morning focusing on intense training adapted into fun drills, and the afternoon..
Football - Day 1 & 2 We had a great response to The Mall Football Camp, with the pupils 3 favourite coaches Theo, Kieran.W and Kieran.T everyone knew it was going to be a good 2 days from the word go. The first day focused on attacking and defending, with each player willing to learn new skills. We adapted these elements into fun games as we wanted the camp to be as enjoyable as possible. In the afternoons we were able to go into matches where the players were automatically taking what they have learnt in the morning and showcasing it in..
It was great to be back at Old Wimbledonians after a short break. We had some very gifted players turn up which made it a great camp as the skill level was so high. As it was a two day course we were able to concentrate on contact on the first day playing loads of games to get the boys making tackles. The camp also included work on special awareness and decision making. "Robert, who won player of the camp is one of the strongest players I have had to pleasure to work with as not only were his skills excellent, his overall attitude was outstanding..
It was fantastic to return to Guildford RFC after such a successful camp in February. We had some skilful players turn up along with some big personalities! Across the three days we worked on beating your man, contact area, ball work and evasive skills. It was exceptionally hard to pick our player of the camp as the quality was so high. It was a pleasure to spend the three days back at Guildford and I look forward to seeing everyone soon at future camps or ADP. Kieran Ttouli - Lead Coach ..
During the Easter holidays Lions ran another successful camp down at Esher RFC. Over the three days the players that attended worked on developing their core rugby and motor skills, whilst still having fun. It was a joy to see them depart each day with smiles on their faces. The U12s at Esher are regulars on the Lions Camp. It is great to witness their improvment which is evidenced by their results such as winning their tour of Jersey. Esher are blessed with a high standard of players and as a coach it is a pleasure to..
A great end of season turn out in Bushy Park, filled with fun games, cake (AJ's Birthday) and rugby players made from animals, our longest running camp never let's us down! As always we had a great group of athletes ranging from U6s all the way through to U15s. During the camp we focused on aspects such as decision making with the ball in hand, tackle technique using the 6 key points of the tackle as well as breakdown skills and tips and tricks to beat a defender. Outside of our skill based exercises we played some games of kick tennis in which some of ..
