Two of AFYA’s top coaches popped over to Ireland last week to help Shadowman Sports run the first specialised tackle camp for Young Munster RUFC.
Founded in 1895, Young Munster is a Rugby Union club based in Limerick.
Our coaches James Wade and Scott Pearson helped to run the Shadowman tackle camp for children aged between 7 and 13. Each child received specialised training using Shadowman’s innovative training products, which allow rugby players to develop their speed and agility plus their one-on-one tackling and tracking.
James Wade, Chief Operating Officer and Head of Training and Development for AFYA, said: “We had a fantastic time at Young Munster with over 210 enthusiastic children taking part.
“They were extremely receptive to the technical skills we introduced them to and they learnt a lot over the course of the day.
“We look forward to working with them again in the future.”
James Wade is also Head Coach at Oxford University RUFC while Scott Pearson has worked with Worcester Warriors, Stoke City and Sale Sharks in a number of key Strength and Conditioning roles.
