Dave Larham and Nino with the U13s age-group
The London Wasps Coachclass Team went international in June by visiting Val Di Sole in Northern Italy to support the Pro Rugby Italia two-week rugby camp. Five members of our Community Team joined members of the RFU and Italian coaches over a two-week period to coach 140 children aged 9-12 from all over Italy.

Community Rugby Manager Dave Larham said, "The two weeks provided a great opportunity for London Wasps to support the development of grassroots Italian rugby, further develop our partnership with Pro Rugby and take the Wasps Brand to Northern Italy. From a coaching viewpoint, it gave our coaches the challenge of having to broaden their ability to communicate with young players and bridge the cultural divides."
London Wasps have enjoyed a developing four-year partnership with Pro Rugby which has seen groups of young Italian players visit our UK-based Coachclass events that include our 'Rise Above The Rest' Residential Coachclass. This year we are looking forward to welcoming a group of 30+ Italian children aged 13-16 to RAF Halton in August.
We would like to thank Agostino Gotti and all those involved with the rugby camp for their support, hospitality and providing an amazing experience.
Our showpiece Coachclass event will be on Monday 5th August to Friday 9th August for players aged 12yrs to 16yrs. Participants will enjoy a fantastic rugby and activity experience at Royal Air Force Halton near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. There are now less than 10 of the 100 available places remaining. We welcome group bookings from club age-groups or school teams from the UK and overseas.
