Rugby and Academic Success

The impact of a BrainChild program often shows in physical improvements first.

B arrived at BrainChild, age 15,  a promising rugby player with a limiting running style, but the main concern was with his worrying academic progress.

An early email from his mum included this picture.

B on Saturday 28 March at the final of the Junior House Rugby Tournament – which his team won by too many tries!

He emailed this picture to me himself as he was particularly pleased with his running style.   His weight is totally forward and he looks like an athlete.

Previous to this his running style was almost laborious. His body was tilted backwards, with his chest out and he put the heel of his foot down first, followed by the front.

We will get a report on his academic progress at the end of term.

A later email after the completion of his program:

Just thought I would drop you a line as this is GCSE results day.

B worked hard and gained GSCE in all major subjects English, Maths, Sciences as well as PE.  He failed Graphics – but only with a D, we are currently looking into this as he was predicted a C.

We are thrilled.

I have also attached a picture of him taken recently.

The picture was taken when he was selected for the England Under 16 rugby team.  He was presented with his first English shirt and cap.

What an achievement!
