October Half-Term Rugby Camp

dnata Travel Sports Academy & Sedbergh School are bringing John Fletcher to deliver a unique coaching experience to the UAE.  This unique opportunity will provide players aged from U13 to U16 an fantastic coaching experience from one of the rugby’s most respected coaches.

The dnata Travel Rugby Academy is truly delighted to welcome John Fletcher to deliver the October Half Term Rugby Programme. John has had an illustrious coaching career with extraordinary success in the development of high performing junior rugby players. Players such as Anthony Watson, Owen Farrell, George Ford, Maro Itoje and the Vunipola brothers have all paid testament to the influence of John on their careers.

John has had an incredible career in rugby coaching starting out as Head Coach of the Newcastle Falcons Academy before being promoted to Senior Director of Rugby. John was soon headhunted for a role with the Rugby Football Union as Head Coach of the England Under 18 team with a clear brief of developing players that one day will have the capability of winning a Rugby World Cup for England Rugby, many of whom we see wearing the red rose in Japan today.

John and his coaches will create a genuinely exciting environment for children to explore and learn in. They will be inspired to value and drive their personal development in preparing for the game of the future. Innovative and creative coaching will be at the heart of the programme. ‘Low and High numbers’ as opposed to ‘Backs and Forwards’, ‘Battle for the number 35 shirt’ and ‘Target Men’ in game situations will all contribute to the world class development programme.
