The official camp provider to the Premiership clubs.

 

Premiership Rugby Academy
 

The Premiership Rugby Academy is the only official camp provider to the Premiership Rugby Clubs. We have access to all the top players and the very best coaching staff. Gallagher Premiership Rugby has established itself as the best domestic club competition in the world and contains some of the biggest names in world rugby. So who better to learn from?

Rugby has been delivering rugby focused activity camps for over 6 years for children aged 6 to 17 through its Premiership Rugby Academy. Each year over 10,000 children take part in healthy activity during the school holidays at camps across England that are delivered by the Gallagher Premiership Rugby clubs that engage and educate children through sport.

The camps are available to children of all ability and each camp is designed by professional coaches. Children will learn all the latest techniques and skills from the cutting edge of the game and will be encouraged to be their best.

 

Top Clubs and Players
 

The Premiership has established itself as the best domestic club competition in the world and contains some of the biggest club names in world rugby. Elite players from the home nations include top England talisman Owen Farrell, Welsh powerhouse Taulupe Faletau, Scotland Full-back Stuart Hogg and Ireland fly-half Ian Madigan. There are also a host of big international names such as All Black full-back Charles Piutau, Springbok superstar Faff de Klerk and the Fijian try-scoring machine Vereniki Goneva.

Our camps' philosophy is twofold. To provide participants with the opportunity to be coached by current Gallagher Premiership Rugby stars. And to give them the chance to delve deeper into what it takes to reach the very top level in the game.

Top Players on Show

Every course will be visited by Gallagher Premiership Rugby players, who'll pass on tips on how to take your game to the next level. Children have the opportunity to learn from top coaches such as Head Coach of Harlequins Paul Gustard, and players like Jamie George, Harry Mallinder and Jimmy Gopperth as well as a host of other Gallagher Premiership Rugby Stars who have all been on hand to help deliver a master class.
