For this year's Autumn Coachclass Programme sponsored by BRITA our Community Team travelled to three rugby clubs and one school spread over four counties, with 250 children aged 6-16 years old in attendance.

The Autumn Programme started on Monday 28th October with a visit to Westcliff RFC in Essex, with 75+ children enjoying the Two-Day event. While in Bucks, our Three-Day event at Beaconsfield RFC started the next day with 70+ children enjoying their rugby at our annual Autumn Coachclass that is now in it's eighth year. On the same day, our Four-Day Coachclass started at The Hawthorns School in Surrey for 30 school pupils; as part of the London Wasps Independant Schools Programme. The final Coachclass event of the week started on Wednesday 30th October at Oxfordshire-based Community Partner Club Witney RFC, where 60+ children spent two days learning core rugby skills, teamwork and decision making.

As well as a full schedule of rugby, prizes, certificates and a BRITA "Fill and Go" Bottle, the players at Westcliff RFC, Beaconsfield RFC and Witney RFC also received visits from some of the London Wasps players:

  • Rory Pitman and Liam O'Neill at Westcliff RFC
  • William Helu and Taione Vea at Beaconsfield RFC
  • Tom Varndell at Witney RFC

Coachclass Programme Officer Ryan Hunt was pleased with our Autumn Programme and said, "The appeal of the programme continues to grow. We have delivered CoacHclass at regular hosts Beaconsfield, Westcliff & Witney, and also expanded to link with our Independent Schools Programme at The Hawthorns School. I would like to thank everyone involved in making the week such a rewarding experience for all of the young players."
