Get fitter at half term!
As you know, Cranbrook RFC is fully committed in making our players even better and to enhance their enjoyment. That’s why all our coaches attend various courses, training clinics, CPD’s etc. In addition to coaching; fitness, strength and so forth are very important contributing factors towards the “better rugby player” and will make a difference. Generally speaking, fitness training should and will not take place on Sundays – that’s for skills, matches and rugby training. Fitness and strength training should be homework!
As such, I am delighted to announce, as a great alternative to movies, Xbox, PSP and other halt termactivities your loved ones may be engaged with, that the Weald Tri-club, led by head-coach, Gary Jones, have very kindly offered to host a “Training Camp” on:
Monday Feb 15thand Wednesday Feb 17thfrom 10:00 – 12:00 at Cranbrook RFC
Cost only £10 per player for both days (all proceeds generated will go to CRFC).
The “Camp” is meant to be an eye-opener on how players, of any age, can work on their fitness, in order to enhance their rugby but also general lifestyle. The instructors will address stretching, dynamic and static, warming up, run drills and some form of performance testing.
In the first instance it will be open for all CRFC mini/midi/junior players only (well that’s over 400 players anyway).
I have no doubt this will be a roaring success and urge all to sign up ASAP. Numbers will be capped at 40 players on a first come first serve basis so please don’t delay!
Subject box: Tri (followed by YOUR name)
Text: names of your child/children and which age group she/he/they normally play for
Payment will ONLYbe via GoCardLess andONLYin advance
(If you haven’t got a GoCardLess account – I will send you a DirectDebit form which will need completing soonest possible).
