The camps are open to boys and girls in the U7's to U15's (as of 01/09/2020) and we welcome all abilities. 

The participant will be working with other attendees in their year group at school. to development their key skills, spatial awareness and technical game understanding.

All London Irish coaches are DBS cleared and suitably qualified.

We would like to stress that children of all levels and experience are welcome and we encourage new players to come and give rugby a try in a safe controlled environment.

As an added extra for attending our camp, each participant will receive a bespoke London Irish camp t-shirt and have chance to meet a professional player*.

The camp will be run in line with the RFU and government guidelines making sure that the camps are safely delivered for participants and staff. We have taken extra measures to ensure that every camp attendee is safe.

Bromley Festival - teaming up with Kings for Barbarians Teams 13th Oct

Great Sunday of rugby for the Tigers!

 

Southwark Tigers had 4 teams in action at the Bromley festival - U8s, U9s, U10 and U11s.  Against all the big clubs - Whitgiftians, Elthamians, Sidcup, Bromley, Colfeans, Dunstonians etc - we did really well.  We won more matches than we lost and I think James' U9s won 4 of his 5 matches.  It was great to work with the coaches from Kings College Pirates and share players.  Also well done to Elaine who reffed the youngest teams at a tournament. It was a longer festival than anticipated and we didn't get back until 3:45pm! 

 

U12s - Ed and Cliff went to Elthamians for the Foxbury Festival, and despite being short of many experienced players left the tournament undefeated! 

 

At home Freddie ran the coaching for the U13/14/15s - we had about 16 players turn up and be involved in a very productive training session.  

Well done everybody.  

Also a big hug to Mags who is recovering from knee surgery and will soon be back running the women and girls rugby at Tigers.
