HAC RFC – Shackleton

Surviving Storm Dennis

Working with the HAC RFC in a coaching capacity, the use of a theme – Shackleton’s escape from the Antarctic – helped the group to reassess the team’s direction and values. Click here for more info

Project Apollo

Small Steps – Giant Leaps

Combining the use of a theme with character coaching, this project sought to motivate a schoolboy rugby team to aim higher with their goals, to push themselves and to support each other.

Project Apollo built on previous work with young people in terms of their mental health, emotional well-being and gender dynamics in sport.
