”Super organisation and communication, the quality of the rugby coaching itself is high, age and ability appropriate with sufficient stretch. As a group the boys seemed to form a strong team and the extra activities were a bonus. Very comprehensive feedback has been provided to take forward into club training which is much appreciated.Sian - Parent2019 PSA Rugby Academy, South England
”The PSA Rugby Academy South England provided my son with a plan to focus on technique that could be carried into the season. We felt that talking to Thomas afterwards he had far more take away knowledge compared to other holiday courses, while the report with video evidence backing up the comments was especially useful.Thomas - Parent2019 PSA Rugby Academy, South England
”Best camp ever I would definitely recommend this camp. My son loved every minute of it. He has attended quite a few camps over the last few years but said this was by far the best camp he’s been to.Sarah - Parent2019 PSA Rugby Academy, South England
