Summer Camps 2014

Connacht Rugby is delighted to launch its official Summer Camps for 2014.

Taking place in a range of venues throughout Connacht, the Camps will guarantee the rugby stars of the future an action packed week of training. The Galway Bay Hotel sponsored Camps are open to boys and girls aged between six and 12 years old and registration is now open.

For just €65 your child will be coached by qualified staff, learn new rugby skills while socialising in a safe and fun environment.

All activities are child focused and participants will be coached by a panel of experts who are all qualified at mini rugby level under the IRFU Coach Development Pathway.

Children can improve their rugby skills and techniques and most importantly have the chance to get out and about during their school holidays. No previous experience of playing rugby is required.

A highlight of the Camps will be the opportunity for young participants to meet their rugby heroes, as members of the Connacht Rugby squad are due to appear at the camps during the course of the week.

All those who register for the Camps will receive an official Connacht Rugby Summer Camp t-shirt and rugby ball.
