Scrumhalf Session with Mike Petri
Andover, MD, Linthicum Heights, MD
High School Player · Middle School Player

Scrumhalf is arguably the most demanding position on a rugby field. Unfortunately, it is also often the most under-coached position in the game. Our sessions are designed to develop proper passing and kicking mechanics as well as decision making and positioning so that each athlete and coach is better prepared to help his or her team succeed. We approach training differently and are always looking for fun, unique ways to help our athletes and coaches.

Scrummy Sessions provides a chance to learn valuable rugby and life skills, develop character, improve self-confidence, enhance leadership capabilities, and collaborate with other ambitious rugby players and coaches. It aims to foster a fun environment that offers safe, high quality activities to develop a more complete and dynamic American scrumhalf.

High School: $15.00
