Former English Rugby player Jason Robinson gave Rugby tips to Wingfield Academy in Rotherham in a Rugby coaching class on Monday, 27th January 2020.
Wingfield Academy previously won the training experience in one of our exclusive 'My School Rewards' competitions and they were very excited when we shared the news with them.
Nearly 200 students had the opportunity to meet and train with Jason Robinson and we could not have asked for better weather for a training day with the Rugby World Cup winner.
The day started off with Jason sharing his rugby experience and talked about being the best you can be and how to overcome obstacles that can stop you from reaching your goals and potential in an interview with BBC Sheffield. Selected students were also given the opportunity to a Q&A session with the Rugby Legend before the start of the training day.
During the coaching session, Jason focused on footwork, agility, and tackling and it was fantastic to see him passing on his skills and knowledge to Wingfields's pupils in Years 7 to 11.
The former Rugby champion is now the brain behind JR Sports Stars. JR Sports Stars Schools Sporting Achievement Programme is not only an exciting initiative to get young children active in our digital world, but it also supports schools in improving the sporting curriculum.
