FUTURE rugby league stars will receive some of the highest level coaching out there in two upcoming camps at Wath Brow.

Wath Brow Hornets will host two elite rugby league camps for budding sports stars in October.

Youth chairman Martin Brough said: "We're trying to get as much rugby on as possible within the guidelines."

He believes the camps are important for young sports stars following the coronavirus pandemic.

"I don't think a lot of people realise the impact it will have had on young people. It's been a hard time even for the kids."

Wath Brow will host professional coaches from the Rugby AM Elite Kids Camps on their 2020 tour. The two-day camp is open to young rugby stars between the ages of five and 12.

Brough added that the camps are character building as well as skill based.

Camps will operate over two days, Wednesday October 28 and Thursday October 29 from 10am until 3pm.

Another rugby camp, with a date yet to be announced, is set to be held with coaching staff from Newcastle Thunder for 15 and 16 year olds.

The camp will be held over a series of Wednesday night training sessions.
