Rugby Camp

At Stonyhurst we believe that sport is a key component to the development of young people. Not only does this provide a means of exercise and learning new skills, but also gives them an opportunity to develop essential traits such as leadership, honesty, discipline and teamwork that can be used in all aspects of sports and any future career.

Stonyhurst is world famous for its Rugby, providing several pupils with the training and experience to go on to have successful professional sporting careers. We can boast several international sports people among our alumni, including Joe Ansbro (played for Scotland); Will Greenwood, Kyran Bracken and Iain Balshaw (all members of the England squad who won the 2003 Rugby World Cup).

The Stonyhurst Rugby Experience 2024 will be led by Dino Radice and Marcus Jackson. 

Meet the Coaches


Matt Rogerson - Captain of London Irish:

“As a young player,  I was always proud to represent my school and local club and get the opportunity to play with my mates every week. I learnt a lot about the game at this level but when I started getting exposure at representative age grade level such as Lancashire and North of England U18’s, I was exposed to more elite players and oppositions, and most importantly high-quality coaching which allowed me to really start developing my game.
It was within the Lancashire set up that I met Dino, who was personable and approachable from the very beginning and provided world class insight into the specifics of the game, as well as detailed knowledge on how to develop our own individual skill sets as young players. Dino has always been a huge supporter of me, as both a coach and a friend and subsequently we have been in touch regularly over the last 12 years since first meeting as my career has gone from strength to strength.
The coaches that I encountered within the Lancashire set up such as Dino were fundamental to the early stages of my development. They gave me a fantastic springboard to go on to represent Loughborough Students in national league 1 whilst gaining my degree, before graduating and entering the world of professional rugby with Sale Sharks, Jersey Reds and now London Irish.”

Sam Bedlow - Sale Sharks Centre

“Dino's coaching helped me develop massively when I was in my younger part of my career, so it's great to see him and his coaching team passing on the wealth of knowledge they have. The facilities they use at Stonyhurst are top class and cater to any weather conditions. These camps will be the closest to a professional environment while also also being good fun for anyone!”

What the course covers?
