XRugby7s is a new format of rugby taking the sport by storm, and now it’s coming to women’s rugby in Connacht at the start of 2019.
 
XRugby7s consists of games played across a half-size pitch from touchline to touchline. There is a reduced intensity of contact and it’s becoming very popular due to its fun, fast nature. Now we’re giving women’s rugby players in Connacht past and present the opportunity to experience it for themselves.
 
WHAT:
The Connacht Women XRugby7s consists of a six-week training programme commencing in early January, with two blitzes involving all the registered teams. This is primarily targeted at clubs that have had women’s rugby in the past and have folded or are interested in getting women’s rugby started with the view of having a team next season.
 
WHEN:
The training programme begins the week of January 13th 2019 with blitzes taking place on the weekends of February 16th/17th and March 2nd/3rd. Crucially these blitzes will be held on the weekends when there are no Six Nations games!
 
HOW:
Clubs can register by filling our the below registration form before Monday 7th January 2019. Any club can apply but you must have 1 coach and 1 coordinator, and all players must be 18 or over.
Once you have registered you will receive a coaching guide with a week-by-week breakdown on the drills and skills involved with XRugby7s.
 
ANY OTHER QUERIES:
Please email [email protected] and she will get back to you as soon as possible.
 
Best of luck and we’ll see you at the XRugby7s!
