Youth Rugby (Coaching Teenagers)
Rugby was once famously mis-described as ‘a thug’s game played by gentlemen’ but a more realistic assessment is that rugby encourages the development of essential core personal qualities including control, self-discipline, respect, camaraderie and bravery, all of which are so important during adolescent development.

The Rugby Doctor will work to deliver youth rugby in a safe and progressive manner whilst placing considerable emphasis on personal development and providing a rugby education.

How can The Rugby Doctor help your teenagers..?
Consultant - Advise age group leaders on squad management issues to ensure player recruitment and retention
