The ‘Serevi Rugby’ camp is designed to improve players’ core skills such as the tackle, ruck, catch and pass.

Serevi, who is based in Seattle, Washington, said: “I’m fresh off our US Serevi Academy in San Diego, where I trained 60 of America’s top young Sevens athletes with the help of New Zealand sevens’ coach Gordon Tietjens and Argentine great Santiago Gomez Cora.

“We’re dedicated to growing the game of rugby by inspiring and instructing a new swath of youth players. We’re thankful for the opportunity to do this in Bermuda and enjoyed the hospitality and coaching sessions immensely.

All who attended the camps were very impressed with the coaching sessions and really appreciated the opportunity to spend some time with the legend and his very well qualified coaching team. They are looking forward to next year!
