The camp was a sell out with over 85 attendees taking part in the sessions.
On the Wednesday, the attendees were visited by members of the Sale Sharks rugby team including Rob Miller, Tony Buckley and Nathan Fowles who joined in with the group judo activities and then led individual skill and technique sessions. Tony Buckley spoke in depth to the front row, giving them tips and watching them practice their scrums; Tom Holmes drilled those in Line Out positions, Nathan Fowles demonstrated various passing skills for up and coming scrum halves, Rob Miller spent time running a kicking session, Dan Baines demonstrated throwing skills for the line out ….

Each attendee also received a £30 voucher for the Sale Sharks shop, a Core Skills DVD, a Sale Sharks Boot Bag, a complimentary ticket to our first home game v Newcastle Falcons on 13th September and a Season Ticket offer.
Feedback following the camp has been fantastic, and all the coaching staff, especially Rick Spencer who led the camp, deserve to be delighted with the outcome.
Below are some extracts from the emails received:
"My son had a fabulous week, coming home exhausted but highly motivated from the combination of experiences over the week. He was clearly extremely impressed with the coaches." - David Wilkes, father of a player.
One of the attendees, said, "I've had the time of my life, learnt so many new things and I am determined I want to be a professional rugby player'. Parent, Angeline Tighe added "I sent a boy and five days later it was like a young man arrived home. He said the coaches where excellent."
