With the end of summer on the horizon and the new school year beginning in earnest, England Rugby’s Inner Warrior campaign is returning to provide women with a new challenge as we head towards the autumn.

Haringey Rhinos Rugby Club are offering women the opportunity to fill the void left by the summer holidays with the exciting and dynamic trial session.

The Warrior Camps also give mums the chance to focus on themselves with their children back at school, introducing them to the basic skills of rugby through fast-paced team games and drills, all within a fun, friendly and commitment free environment.

The event takes place at White Hart Lane, London on Saturday from 11am until 1pm and through the Warrior Camps, women of all shapes, sizes, ages and fitness levels can meet and bond with like-minded individuals through a shared love of exercise and a challenge.

The Warrior Camps offer a great outlet for women to express themselves and their inner strength through sport, whether that is through a passion for rugby or their desire to get fit.

England Rugby’s Inner Warrior campaign is designed to increase the number of women engaging in rugby, whether that is through playing, coaching or refereeing. The camps encourage women to step off the touchline and onto the field, transitioning from watching family and friends to playing rugby themselves and developing their passion for the sport.

Rugby also enables participants to develop mental toughness which in turns helps build resilience and self-confidence, furthering their ability to manage the everyday stresses of life. The strong bonds that are formed between teammates, and the support of others can help build the individuals self-esteem through the supportive environment that is bred amongst the players.

Katy Daley-Mclean, England Rugby international, agrees: “Rugby is incredibly inclusive, with the range of positions on the pitch requiring different attributes and skills to be played successfully. It encourages women from all backgrounds and physical statures to come together and bond through the sport.

“One of the best aspects of rugby is the variety of people you meet through the sport; the different characters and backgrounds of your teammates fosters a fun and sociable atmosphere which helps to strengthen the bonds between yourself and your teammates.”

England Rugby’s Warrior Camps are aimed at attracting more women to take up contact rugby. The camps teach participants key introductory skills and drills for rugby, with help on hand every step of the way.

All you’ll need to take part are a pair of trainers, your usual workout gear and a ‘have a go’ attitude.
