The 2013-2014 Aviva Premiership Season will be launched in style on Saturday 7th September with the London Double Header at Twickenham Stadium. London Wasps will be joined by London Irish, Saracens and Harlequins at the home of England Rugby, and we are delighted to invite young rugby players to take part in a full day of rugby.
The annual London Festival of Rugby will see the four London Premiership Rugby clubs join forces to deliver a revamped rugby day out for young players aged 6yrs to 15yrs at a community venue that is local to Twickenham Stadium. Please note that all of the age-groups are based on the 2013-2014 season, and that the coaching and Tag Rugby Development Festivals are governed by the RFU Regulation Age Grade Rugby 15.6 and 15.7
For Under 7s, Under 8s and Under 9s there are age-group Tag Rugby Development Festivals, with teams from far and wide demonstrating the new Rules of Play for Tag Rugby. During the development festival, teams will be selected to showcase their Tag Rugby skills in a demonstration event on the Twickenham Stadium pitch at half-time of one of the two games to be held at Twickenham Stadium, later in the day.
For just £140, a team of eight players and two coaches will gain entry into their age-group Tag Rugby Development Festival, and receive a match ticket each for the London Double Header later on.
For players in the Under 9s, Under 10s, Under 11s, Under 12s, Under 13s, Under 14s or Under 15s next season, the London Double Header Festival of Rugby Coaching Clinic is an ideal opportunity to develop skills, game understanding and decision-making. The 90-minute coaching clinic will see players and teams join together in same-age coaching groups for purposeful activities delivered with an emphasis of enjoyment.
In a change from last year, Under 9s can learn about the New Rules of Play that they will be playing in the new season. Our coaches will deliver sessions based on offloading, tackling and creating space. Give your players a head-start over other players in their age group!!
All of this, plus a match ticket to see the two games at Twickenham Stadium for only £25* per player. *A saving of £5 from last season's £30.
Additional tickets are available for friends and family of Festival of Rugby participants. These cost just £10 for juniors (Under 15s) and £22.50 for adults.
