Crazy Catch were delighted to travel to Carrington training base earlier this month to work with Aviva Premiership Rugby Union side Sale Sharks as their pre-season got into full swing. This video was created in partnership with Centurion Rugby who retail the Crazy Catch and supply Sale Sharks with training equipment.
The Crazy Catch was first associated with Rugby in the lead up to the 2003 World Cup where Sir Clive Woodward used innovative training methods to turn England into World Cup winners. This included using Dr Sherylle Calder, a vision and eye specialist to improve players vision. Calder used the Crazy Catch as a tool to improve eye tracking and peripheral vision and has subsequently worked with other leading sports stars to give them an edge including Ernie Els, the 2012 British Open Winner.
Now Rugby clubs are using the Crazy Catch to improve their reactions, hand eye co-ordination and also specific rugby skills such as handling, picking up a loose ball and you can see in the video above how fun training can be with the Ultimate Rebound Net. We are now getting lots of interest from professional rugby clubs and are supporting Leicester Tigers community roadshows and have recently supplied Connacht Rugby with a number of units to support their training programme for the new season.
