Gifted & Talented in Girls Rugby!

On Monday 9th May 2011 nine girls from years 8 and 9 were invited to take part in a Gifted & Talented training camp at Lavington School.  The camp was organised Chris Ferris the SSCo from Lavington School and Bath Rugby in the Community Coaches Jimmy Deane and Steve Middleton.

Over 90 students from 7 schools took part in a variety of skills workshops which included, kicking, tackling, passing, Speed Agility and Quicknesss training and even had time for some video analysis of exceptional and poor play by the professionals.

Congratulations to the nine girls below who represented The Corsham School.  A special mention to Tonicha Cottle who posted one of the quickest sprint times of the day out of 30 girls.
