The Academy has been amazing and helped Tamzin so much. We signed her up after a pretty bad knock to her confidence and it was the best decision we could have made. The structured, varied skills training has so many options to delve into to and there's training for every aspect of rugby training. The weekly feedback was definitely a game changer. The positive, constructive encouragement provided by Ben made such a difference to both Tamzins confidence and her skill level. We have so much respect for the academy and thoroughly recommend it to everyone thinking of signing up.

Azzie has been part of the Rugby Skills Academy since last March, where Ben John has been his dedicated coach and mentor. Thanks to his guidance and expertise, Azzie’s skills as a player have improved significantly. He particularly enjoys the sessions with Ben, and we make sure to send him videos of Azzie’s progress every week. Azzie has recently moved on to the elite program and has been loving every moment of it, with Ben being an exceptional mentor throughout. Under Ben's tutelage, Azzie has been able to excel and exceed his goals. He has had the honor of being the school captain for the rugby festival, as well as the captain of his rugby team. Additionally, after rigorous trials last September, he was selected for the North East Wales U11 team, even playing a year up. The relationship Azzie has built with Ben is nothing short of fantastic. He is a brilliant role model, Azzie is constantly learning new techniques and skills from him. We are grateful for his mentorship and the opportunities he has provided Azzie to grow and succeed in the sport.

Thanks so much we cannot recommend the academy enough. Lewis’ confidence has grown and he thoroughly enjoys the training each week. The time you dedicate to improving each of the academy members game is fantastic. The training sessions are fun and the drills are invaluable to developing confidence and improving skills.

As a family we are in amazement at the improvements made by Logan regarding his tackle confidence and how this has developed in such a short space of time. The weekly video analysis sessions are invaluable. We load your feedback onto his tablet and use this as part of his game preparation where he views each weeks feedback to get the visualisation of the tackle technique prior to attending his games. I can honestly say his tackle confidence has greatly improved within the 5 weeks in the Academy. He is now no longer scared of larger players running at him and he has a better understanding of how to use his legs to power through the tackle. Tackling was a big asset from him today during his recent games. We cannot wait to see where his Academy journey takes him.

As a family we are in amazement at the improvements made by our son since joining the Academy. During the season he sustained a freak finger injury resulting in a severe loss of confidence in all skill especially his tacking. The weekly programmes have been invaluable in his skill development and his restoration of his confidence. I would say he has become even more confident in his skills since working week on week with the Academy. The weekly video analysis sessions are invaluable. We load the personalised feedback onto his tablet and use this as part of his game preparation where he views each weeks feedback to get the visualisation of the tackle technique/skills prior to attending his games. I can honestly say his tackle confidence has greatly improved resulting in 2 tournament wins and 2 runner up placings this season. Big thanks to the academy for restoring our sons confidence following injury and getting him playing at a higher level.

Taylor has absolutely loved being in the Academy. I think what we really found amazing was if there was a part of his game he struggled on that weekend, we could go and find drills that would directly improve that part of his game. Best money we’ve spent in his development

Eleanor and Isabelle have been doing the academy for sometime and have learnt a lot and it is seen when there on the pitch playing. The skills that they have learnt have helped them to become better players and this is not gone unnoticed by there coaches and other players. With Isabelle it has also helped her with her speed and confidence on the pitch.

Our son has been doing the rugby academy for 3 weeks and we have already seen a big difference in the improvement with his skills. The live sessions are very good, he really enjoys them and gets a lot out of them and so do we! Ben makes the live sessions personal by giving everyone feedback which is fantastic. It is worth every penny and we can't wait to see how his game improves next season. Its a definite thumbs up from Mason. 😁

The academy has been brilliant for Ollie. The confidence he has gained in ball skills and tackling is just amazing in a short time. A shout out with advice on how to improve in the weekly skill sessions makes his day! Ollie is only an under 9, but the improvement is very clear- picked up and congratulated by his team coaches. Thanks Ben!

The Academy gave us access to a incredible database of training videos. This year with the exams prep my son was able to train at his own pace in his own time and he has managed to improve his play. There are many thing about the academy but one of the most important one is that you can chose your training sets for different skills from the video database.

The academy is really well structured and is unique in that it gives one to one support as well as a group to interact with and learn at the same time. The video sessions are well put together and provide clear instructions to help in all areas of the game and core skills. It really helped me a lot to improve my ball handling.

The academy helped Finleys confidence first and foremost! The detail and explanation with each drill were spot on and its lessons are invaluable. Finley had the game of his life on Sunday earning him player of the match and it’s a complete transformation of the player he was when he started! Unfortunately I am no longer coaching due to my youngest joining football but having the skills and drills available to help my group was amazing and also built confidence in me that I had the knowledge and knew what I was talking about thanks to Ben! Keep doing what your doing as you will be helping so many players and we will keep an eye out on your YouTube channel for sure!
