Connacht Rugby Summer Camps

107

The Connacht Rugby Summer Camps are back by popular demand for 2017 with extra venues added across the province to cater for the huge demand.

The Camps take place over five days for boys and girls aged between six and 12 with no rugby experience necessary to attend.

The Connacht Rugby Summer Camps are an introduction to the game of rugby in a safe and controlled manner and will be managed by fully accredited IRFU coaches who will guide the children through fun games and activities over the five days.

The Camps cost just €80 and take place from Monday-Friday (inclusive) running from 9.30am-2pm daily with a 9am start on the first day for registration.

Children who participate will get the chance to make new friends and learn more about rugby values such as team work, commitment and integrity – and they will also meet a Connacht player!

They will also become more aware of the importance of physical fitness and will learn to develop the basic rugby skills of passing, tackling, evasion and kicking and, most important of all, have a lot of fun to boot!

Every child that attends will receive a Connacht Rugby Summer Camp Pack that includes an official Summer Camp jersey, a Connacht Rugby rucksack, a rugby ball, and one free junior ticket to a selected Connacht Rugby match next season.

Hi Folks,
Creggs Rugby Club are looking to take part in this year’s Big Rugby Run on May 22nd. The event format will see each registered team committing to running the 42-kilometer distance of a full marathon in your club colours – all while carrying a rugby ball! This distance will be completed as a relay, by teams of up to 21 members aged 10 and upwards. This means a Minimum of 2km per runner/walker. This year funds raised are going toward initiatives run by Tackle Your Feelings, a mental health and well-being programme ran by the Rugby Player Ireland foundation.
If interested, please let us know and once we have numbers competing, we will create a text group where all information will be put up for the next steps to follow. For any questions before signing up contact Kenneth Loughrey on 0857664010 or go to www.psaacademies.com/thebigrugbyrun for information.
