Over 450 boys and girls learned to play the Leinster Way in week one of the Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby Camps.
There was plenty of fun and lots of activities furing the week, with the Women’s Rugby World Cup trophy making an appearance and the player visits the biggest hits with the camp goers.
Rob Kearney and Ross Byrne made an appearance at our Donnybrook camp, Adam Byrne and Peader Timmins made their way to the south-east to our Wexford Wanderers camp, Sean Cronin and Jordi Murphy called in to Portarlington RFC and Jamie Heaslip and Jamison Gibson-Park dropped in to Terenure to pass on their rugby knowledge and take part in a Q&A session with the kids.
There are 24 more camps to take place across Leinster over the next six weeks. More than 2,800 boys and girls aged 6-12 year olds will be taking to the pitch and learning to play the Leinster Way, with a strong emphasis placed on the capacities of the players
Coaching is tailored to each individual group and conducted in an appropriate, safe manner with the aim of optimising learning, creating friendships, improving rugby skills and enhancing rugby-specific knowledge, while having lots of fun along the way.
