Another Talented Coach On Lions Books - Tuesday Talent: George Flatman
George is one of our most talented coaches, who is 100% reliable & committed. You might recognise George from some of our previous camps, most recently he coached on our 3 day camp at Guildford RFC during February half term. He certainly made a lot of the kids laugh throughout those 3 days & also helped them improve some of their key skills in rugby such as handling, kicking & running with the ball!   I hope you enjoy the sound of George as much as we do!   Name : George Flatman    How long have you been coaching?

Lions Sports Academy Residential's back with a bang this Easter after last year’s success!
Last summer, Lions Sports Academy decided to run a week long rugby residential for girls at Aldro School in Godalming, Surrey. Having never run a residential before, everyone involved was uncertain as to how the week might play out, but by the end of the week there was one thing that everyone was certain about & that was how much of a resounding success it had been. It is with great pleasure that, following on from last year’s success, Lions Sports Academy have decided to run another rugby residential, this time during the Easter holidays at Boxhill School in Dorking.

Tuesday Talent Coach - Laura-Alice Smith
Some people are destined to be involved in rugby from a young age, and this can certainly be said of this week's Tuesday Talent Laura-Alice Smith. Laura-Alice has been involved in rugby from a very young age, representing Worcester Warriors at Junior age grade & was in the process of selection for the U15s England Development squad when a severe ankle injury prevented her from taking her career at the top level any further.  But this is what makes Laura-Alice so special, in that she did not let this injury get her down but instead turned it into an advantage by getting involved..
