Mikki Austin leads Netball Superstar Masterclass
Two-day expert-led specific sports camps
Mini and Junior Multi-Sport camps (ages 4-11)
The Only Camps, leaders in offering expert-led sports camp coaching for 4-18-year-olds in Sussex, have today announced their Easter 2021 schedule which includes netball, cricket, hockey and rugby Superstar Masterclasses, as well as a series of two-day specific sports camps and one-to-four-day Junior and Mini Multi-Sport camps. The camps will all be held at the first-class facilities at Hurstpierpoint College, West Sussex, with the exception of the Rugby Superstar Masterclass which will be held again at Worthing Rugby Club.
Launched in December 2020, the Superstar Masterclasses deliver a professional approach to development and deliver a mixture of adaptive and closed-skill practice. The inaugural rugby masterclass, run by England rugby legend Chris Robshaw, was sold out and saw 130 young athletes personally coached by the star at Worthing Rugby Club.
The camps will be run under each national governing body’s COVID regulations, in line with current government guidelines. Children will be required to sanitise their hands throughout the day. Social distancing will be practised, when not playing sport, and food and drink cannot be shared.
The Only Camps director, Freddie Pierrepont, said: “We are thrilled to be back this Easter with a packed and varied schedule that will allow children of all ages to ‘Learn from the Best’. Our goal is always to keep children active, healthy and engaged, whilst they continue to develop their sporting skills. We are still taking government and NGB advice very seriously to ensure the environment is safe for all the children that attend, as well as for our extremely talented and experienced coaches.”
