Why the London Wasps CoacHclass?
In the last ten years our CoacHclass has enabled thousands of players to enjoy a healthy and active programme during their
school holidays. We are proud that former CoacHclass players Sam Jones, Jack Wallace, Bob Baker and Alex Cheeseman all graduated through the London Wasps before representing the London Wasps team. Our player-centred approach has helped to develop, stretch and challenge:

  • our CoacHclass players' competence to perform technical and tactical skills
  • our CoacHclass players' confidence, positive self-worth and self-efficiency
  • our CoacHclass players' ability to make connections through positive bonds with people and institutions resulting in successful relationships
  • our CoacHclass players character and caring through respect for social and cultural rules, possession of standards for correct behaviors, a sense of right and wrong, and integrity
  • our CoacHclass players' creativity through making well-formed decisions and finding their own solutions

Our CoacHclass Delivery Team
Our RFU-qualified & CRB Certificated coaches work with their age-groups to improve individual core skills, unit skills and team skills. They work very hard to create an excellent player-centred learning environment to develop every player's core skills and game understanding. Our CoacHclass physio will be available throughout the entirety of the CoacHclass to manage the players bodies, provide injury treatment and rehabilitation. A London Wasps Academy coach will also be in attendance throughout the CoacHclass for our Academy Talent Identification Programme.
