Trytime Rugby back on board as our Coaching Partner in 2018

Trytime Rugby are the official coaching partner for the Harbord Harlequins. Mike Cross, the Owner of Trytime, has a wealth of experience in coaching rugby from grass roots right through to first grade rugby. Mike has been instrumental in the development of the Harbord Harlequins coaching and proficiency guidelines for each age group, ensuring that the coaches and kids are developing the right skills and focus relevant to the age.

Trytime aim to create the opportunity for all players to get the best out of their rugby whether that is to have fun with their friends or to sign their next professional contract. At a junior level Mike and his team run individual or small group coaching sessions, as well as school holiday rugby camps for players aged between 6-18 years. There is a strong emphasis on fun but also on personal development on and off the field.

Since Mike has joined the Harlequins as our official coaching partner, the club has raised the bar significantly in terms of our approach and professionalism around coaching and development for both our coaches and players alike.

Our club is not renowned for size, so we have to play smart and skilful rugby. Focus on our strengths (Speed) and attack our competitors’ weaknesses (fitness). To do this we need to ensure our players are given then best possible technical and tactical coaching.
