Over 60 children from Wath Brow Hornets enjoyed a great day with the Bradford Bulls community foundation coaching team.

The day included rugby drills and basic skills techniques that will enhance the youngsters whilst progressing through the different levels of rugby in the future.

Bradford Bulls head community coach Nigel Johnston said, all the children who attended the session were a credit to their club, parents and their club coaches. Hornets’ own coaches were very impressed with the high level of skills and knowledge the youngsters had already achieved prior to the day’s session.

The Wath Brow club is hoping that this will be a annual event with the Hornets and look forward to attending next year. On 18th August the club held their second and final sports rugby camp of the summer holidays, this time Super league giants St Helens community coaching team took the event.

Again the children fully enjoyed the experience and were introduced to new techniques while both playing and training. This will help the youngsters develop their own personal and team skills in whatever way needed. Both camps have attracted over 120 young children. Next year the Hornets hope to increase the number of professional clubs attending their summer camps.

A Wath Brow Hornets spokesman said: “It’s great having different clubs attending these summer camps. Not only does it help promote the game but it also helps the children progress quicker when introduced to new training techniques. They also get a sense of how professional clubs introduce training techniques to the sessions. The children also receive a talk on healthy living which is a big factor not only in sport but in their future lives.”
