2013 sees a revamped program with the focus still very much on the fundamentals of the game – attack, defence, tackle contest and tackle support. For those taking part in the Pathway to Gold High Performance Camp more time is devoted to rugby specific skills and game development.
“I loved Camp Wallaby it taught me new skills that I can use in further development on my pathway to become a Wallaby. It was the best camp ever!!!”
On day 1 of each camp, registration will commence at 8:30am followed by a welcome and introduction for all participants.
Participants will use a variety of Riverview’s facilities which may include indoor venues such as the sports hall and swimming pool. If your child is unable to swim please notify staff at registration. We will be grouping the participants into age groups for the purposes of running the activities, to ensure appropriate syllabus (camp program) and safety considerations. Where possible we will endeavour to keep friends together.

Program: The Pathway to Gold High Performance camp aims to provide quality learning camp experience for players that aspire to be the best player they can be. The camp will challenge and prepare players of higher ability for the current rugby season. Each day will be split into sessions of 30 minutes with the four age bands 11s, 12s, 13s and 14s rotating between different skill, game development, testing and recovery activities. Additionally all players will receive a Pathway to Gold player manual providing information on how to maximise performance away from the playing field.
Day 1 starts with sessions on attack tackle and tackle contest. After lunch all players undertake an athletic development session including some challenges followed by cross field sevens games. Day 2 will commence with a positional specific skill session before looking at defence principles, tackle contest and unit skills of both forwards and backs. On field activities finish with cross field sevens games. Each day will conclude with a recovery session using the pool, hot/cold showers and dry recovery.
