A total of 50 players have been selected to attend the 2020 New Zealand Barbarians Junior Crusaders Camp next week.

Alongside New Zealand Barbarians and New Zealand Rugby, the Crusaders notified players of their inclusion in the three-day camp to be held from 28th-30th September at Christchurch Park in Mairehau.

For the first time, six female players will also take part in the camp, which focuses on the 6 Pillars of Player Development: technical, tactical, physical, nutrition, mental skills, and personal development. The camp is delivered by Crusaders and Crusaders Academy staff, as well as local volunteer coaches, and current players.

Crusaders Academy Manager, Aaron Webb said: "We have a full schedule planned over the course of three days, with an equal focus on off-field and on-field development. We're fortunate to have a great group of Crusaders and Academy staff, coaches and players involved, who will provide these young players with invaluable information and advice.

"This camp is always an enjoyable part of our calendar, and we hope these 50 players will get the most out of it, not just in terms of their rugby development but their personal development as well," Webb said.

In total, 13 schools from within the Crusaders region are represented, while Atlanta Lolohea (Christchurch) and Alisi Seigafo (Wanderers) have both been selected from their clubs.

Following the camp, a squad of 25 players will be selected to take on the Highlanders Under 18 side on Friday 2nd October, in Timaru.
