The IRFU and Connacht Rugby are pleased to announce that 38 clubs, across all four provinces, will host our ‘Give It A Try’ Summer 2018 Programme to introduce girls aged 10-14 to rugby in a fun environment.

The ‘Give It A Try’ Programme lasts for eight weeks with one training session per week in the chosen clubs. As the girls learn how to play rugby, they will get the opportunity to play matches against neighbouring clubs as well as coming together for the National ‘Give It A Try’ Festival in August.

All players will also receive a free training T-shirt, as well as getting to meet one of the Ireland Women’s team.

See below for the dates and locations of the Connacht clubs hosting the programme, as well as contact details on how to get involved.
