Looking for a new way to fire up your team? Why not develop their skills with professional coaching? On your school rugby tour to Wales, you’ll train with youth coaches from Pro 14 sides Cardiff Blues, Ospreys, Dragons or Scarlets.

Further inspiration for your team could come in the form of tickets to see a professional match. In addition, your students could escort the team onto the pitch as flagbearers, before taking a lap of honour at half time.

After this experience, your team will have improved their technical rugby. Their brush with the life of a professional rugby player will also inspire them, leaving them ready for the challenges ahead.

Don't take our word for it …

Superb 4 day trip to Barca / Salou 24th September. Travelled with 36 pupils who had a fantastic time at the Cambrills Sports Village, fixtures, coaching,theme park, nou camp etc. Every aspect of the tour was superbly organised and went to plan and all as described. Great communication, planning and value for money from Halsbury. I will be doing the same again next year with them. Brilliant trip, thank you to Halsbury, Kate, Maria for a hassle free well organised school tour. — Wheelers Lane Technology College, September 2023
