The entire OURLFC men’s squad (Maroons and Blues) trains together four times a week, with a training session out at Marston on monday nights during the season (see map below). We also have regular group fitness sessions on Monday and Friday mornings using the Iffley Road sports facilities.
The club runs two playing training sessions every week – on Monday and Friday evenings. Mondays are taken by Dan Garbutt, with Fridays taken by Tom James – two coaches with vast experience of coaching at Semi-Professional level. We also provide a gym programme of two sessions a week for our players, run by Strength and Conditioning coach Matt Queralt. Friday training takes place at Oxford RFC in Hinksey in Michaelmas and then on the Astroturf at Iffley Road in Hilary Term.
