Wasps Academy Developing Player Programme
The 2016/17 season has seen a few changes in our Wasps DPP bases.
The Wasps DPP is the entry level Academy programme aimed at U13-U15 players.
Wasps have maintained their bases at Aylesbury RFC in Buckinghamshire & Gosford All Blacks RFC in Oxfordshire.
Wasps have lost their Middlesex base at Harrow School but gained two new venues. One new venue is at Old Coventrians RFC in Coventry and the other at Nuneaton Old Edwardians RFC in North Warwickshire.
The trial DPP sessions Wasps have run over the summer have proved to be extremely popular with a record number of nominations. The last few weeks have seen all the players put through their paces and challenged by the coaching staff.
The selected players will now enter in to the development focused programme, with sessions running through to April 2017.
Each session covers rugby components of catch & pass, tackle technique, collision skills & game understanding, combined with an athletic development programme. The aim of these programmes are to improve the co-ordination and strength & speed of the players. Best of luck to all those involved this season.
