Edinburgh University One Day Camp with Claire Cruikshank | Wednesday 30th June
Join former Scotland International Claire Cruikshank and the Girls Rugby Club in Edinburgh with top coaches for a full day rugby coaching camp you will never forget.
Girls Rugby Club Camp
The Girls Rugby Club welcomes players of ages U13, U15 and U18 with all abilities for a fun-filled day of rugby action.
The lessons learned through sport cross over into all areas of life, lasting long after our playing days are over.
We recognise the power of rugby to develop people both on and off the field and that’s why we’ve taken a holistic approach with our coaching.
The Girls Rugby Club is designed to empower girls to play their best game and live their best life, with expert coaching from those who understand that women are not just small men.
Rugby is more than just a sport. It’s where we create some of our best memories, meet some of our favourite people, smash our biggest goals, and discover our identity.
The Girls Rugby Club is where all of that magic happens, providing a non-intimidating environment to enjoy rugby, discover your strengths and weaknesses, discover opportunities, and ultimately get inspired to take your rugby further.
Our expert coaches include current and former England internationals and some of the best brains in the game, all passionate about sharing their knowledge whilst nurturing and developing young female rugby talent.
While we’ve come a long way, we know that the traditional rugby environment isn’t always welcoming for girls and so we’re committed to creating a space where the door is always open for girls to feel comfortable and confident about having a go and expressing themselves through sport.
