HKFC Summer Mini Rugby Camp
HKFC Summer Mini Rugby Camp17 Sep 2021
Over the 2021 summer holidays, the HKFC Mini Rugby section has held its biggest and most ambitious rugby camp. Held over six weeks (three weeks for the U5-U8 age groups and three weeks for the U9-U12 age groups), the camp has been hugely popular, running at almost full capacity every day.
The emphasis has very much been on fun, making friends and learning some new skills. Usually, the day would start out with skills and games on the pitch, followed by indoor activities as the weather warmed up. However, being Hong Kong in the summer months, the weather often forced quite a few changes to the plans! To handle the heat, a few unusual training methods were used, such as water fights and a “slip and slide”! Indoor activities had a big emphasis on coordination, movement skills and working as a team.
Camp participants were blessed with an incredible team of coaches. Mark Wright; HK International and former professional player in Japan. Tom Isaacs; international 7s player with Wales and HKFC player/coach. Rosie Wright; also a HK international player and HKFC star. Kate Palis; HKFC Ice player and head of the girls' youth section at Club. Tasham Ramsey; former HK Age Grade player and elite league Touch rugby player. Wesley Feausi; former HKFC Ice Head Coach. Callum Hardie; Otago provincial player and HKFC Coach.
