Sports tours and camps
Sevenoaks School organises a number of tours and training camps on a regular basis both at home and overseas. Typically overseas tours are run at the senior end of the school on a three-year rotation so that all pupils have an opportunity to tour in their chosen sport. We also run tours in Year 9 on an annual basis to more local destinations to give our pupils the opportunity to experience touring lower down the school.
Anyone who has ever toured with their school will understand just what an incredibly unique experience it is. For many this will be the only time in their lives that they will have the chance to tour with their peers and compete against likeminded people on an international stage. A sports tour allows players to visit different countries, understand more of the local culture and to see and experience things that ordinary tourists would not. Above all else touring allows young people to grow, develop and mature. A sports tour can provide memories that will last a lifetime!
Recent tours and training camps
Overseas tours occur on a regular basis in many sports including rugby, hockey, football, netball, cricket, tennis and cross-country. Recent tours have visited Canada, Holland, France, Spain, South Africa, St Lucia and Sri Lanka.
Closer to home, every summer a rugby pre-season camp takes place at the school. One hundred players from all age groups experience three days of intense training coached by former internationals including ex-England and Ireland internationals Trevor Woodman (2003 World Cup winner), Peter Richards, Duncan Bell, Kieran Dawson and Dan Caprice (OS 2008).
