Leadership Programme

The successful periods of our history were built on excellent leadership, and the development of young players with potential in to Internationally capped players. Join our Leadership Programme in 2014/15 to start your journey towards achievement and success

What are the Wasps Leadership workshops?
Our five hour workshops focus on the development of leadership skills through the vehicle of sport or rugby, offering a mixture of predominantly practical with some theory based topics. Our workshop will encourage young people to take responsibility for others, develop organisation and communication skills and build confidence for all those involved in school, club and community sporting environments.

"Leadership rests not only on outstanding ability, but on commitment, loyalty, pride and followers ready to accept guidance." – Vince Lombardi, legendary NFL Coach

Why these workshops?
Our workshops are designed to give groups of young people the generic leadership skills that will be vital in other areas of life, offering a fun and practical course that focuses on leading rather than technical ability.

The young people will add benefit to their school/club and their community, creating a workforce of responsible and enthusiastic skilled young people; creating a foundation for progression to further qualifications, and/or National Governing Body awards.

Our workshops are designed and developed by leading professionals to be informative and enjoyable for all participants who possess an interest in sport and leadership.
