About us

One of the most common injuries a player taking part in a contact sport like rugby can suffer from is concussion. While the impact of a minor concussion on a player is often short-lived, there is also the real risk that if the injury is severe, or repeated, that it can also have long term repercussions on a player’s health.

It’s often this prospect of incurring a head injury that will understandably put many parents off allowing their children to join a rugby club. It also prevents adults from playing this energetic and rewarding team sport long term.

Both have a negative impact on the growth and continued survival of rugby. The mission statement of 360 Rugby Coaching is to reduce the rate of concussion and head injuries by creating a safer game overall through training and education.

And this positive goal is achievable without sacrificing the enjoyment of playing rugby, which has a host of benefits to health, including improving fitness, strength and self-confidence, as well as instilling discipline and reducing stress.

The Key Aims of 360 Rugby Coaching are:

  • To create a safer sport without sacrificing the enjoyment of the game
  • Increase longevity in players of all ages
  • Minimise the potential negative effects that rugby can have on both the brain and body during contact scenarios

Just checked with Caitlin and Ellie about aspects if the camp they enjoyed the most and they both replied "All of it!" They couldn't think of any improvements apart from they wanted a longer camp! A big thanks to all concerned for a fantastic, value for money experience.

George was made very welcome despite not knowing anyone and soon got stuck in.  He came home telling me how he’d learnt how to tackle differently compared to how he is taught at school
