Rugby players with girls

In their final session of the term Sport Scholars got to work with Russell Earnshaw.

Russell played rugby union for England and has played a prominent role in coaching development squads and mentoring athletes from many disciplines to perform at the very highest level.

He worked with our Diploma Scholars to challenge them to take ownership and create their own individual development plans and then worked with our Sports Scholars to help them add innovation into their training and game play. 
During his day at Benenden, he very kindly also ran some staff training sessions, Netball sessions for the Fourths and worked with Scholars and senior Lacrosse players to help challenge the status quo and help our athletes explore new ways to gain advantage when playing sport.
