About your coach

Clarice has been playing rugby for 9 years. She first played in for her 6th form team and continued playing during her time at the University of Hull. She then moved back to East Anglia and played for an Ipswich club.

Haven obtained a level 2 qualification in Rugby coaching; Clarice is now a coach at the Colchester rugby club for players between the ages of 4-18.

Alongside Clarice’s coaching, she has also been a captain for the under 18’s Eastern Counties Rugby Tournament and coached at St Joseph’s Rugby Festival in Ipswich.

During the training session, Clarice hopes to engage the children with non-contact, skilled based training and introduce fun rugby games such as sharks & fishes and kickout.

 

 

Our Holiday Fun activities are for families facing economic challenges or who require additional support during the school holidays, including those that qualify for benefits-based free school meals.

Holiday Fun is designed in partnership with African Families in the UK, Bangladeshi Women’s Association Essex and Level Best Enterprises.

This project has been funded by the North East Essex Health and Wellbeing Alliance and Wellbeing Alliance and the Neighbourhood programme and Essex Community Foundation.  Funding is administered through One Colchester.
