Rugby & English Language (UK)
Returning for 2020, we look forward to welcoming top young international players aged 12 to 17 years, boys and girls, to Pangbourne College for an exciting 14 night Rugby & English Language Immersion programme. This will include a place on the high performance PSA Rugby Academy, South England programme, 30 hours of classroom-based learning with quality experienced tutors, 14 nights full board shared accommodation at Pangbourne College, daily evening leisure activities provided by our partners Xplore and 2 one day excursions to visit some of England’s leading tourism attractions.
We believe that our high performance programme combining rugby development with top professional coaches, social/culture immersion with local talented UK rugby players, alongside structured English language tuition, provides the best language-learning experience in the market. By booking this unique programme, you will be ensuring that your young player enjoys unrivaled opportunities to learn across the four key communication elements of listening, reading, speaking and writing all in an engaging, social, safe and fun environment.
Ambitious players will be introduced to our key coaching principles, focusing on the assessment and development of key core skills around passing, rucking, tackling and game management. With the use of leading sports tech, the top coaching team will develop a player-specific report sent to players and parents post-camp to help with ongoing development. But at the PSA Rugby Academy, Westmeath, there is a focus on the wider development of the person through our varied programme content that covers introductions to key sports science areas, mental wellness principles and fun but challenging C.A.R.D.S. (Creativity, Awareness, Resilience, Decision Making & Self-Organisation) based group activities.
