"The whole experience was terrific! The Coaches and Supporting Staff made you feel welcome and very much a part of the whole experience. The facilities are second to none. It was great to mix with other lads and nice to see others attending not only from the UK, but overseas too! I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to improve their rugby skills and knowledge. Thank you Wasps. "

“I had an amazing experience at Wasps this summer. Everyone was really friendly and geared up to making this a great week. The coaching team are so approachable and really care about you as an individual and how you can progress with your game. I came back buzzing and inspired after meeting some of the players. ”
