Congratulations on Record Mini Rugby Camp
A big congratulations to all concerned with setting a new Connacht Rugby record attendance at the Mini-Rugby Summer Camp in Creggs earlier this month.
130 children took part in the great week long camp. The major event was praised by parents and all concerned as having been very well organised and most enjoyable camp. Our tanks to everyone who contributed to making it a great week.
Registration for Creggs Mini rugby for next season will be in early September.
Primary Teacher Course – A big success again!
Congratulations also to everyone involved in the week long hosting of 25 primary teachers for a sell-out summer course titled: “Teaching Fundamental Movement Skills in PE through Tag Rugby”.
For the second year in-a-row, the course was facilitated by the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU). The aim of this Summer course is to introduce Tag Rugby to teachers’ PE classes as a means of helping in acquisition of an appropriate range of movement skills across the PE strands.
Again thank you to all involved in this great sell-out event.
