Four Inclusion Camps taking place this summer
June 2, 2022 2:41 pm Lisa Doyle
Leinster Rugby together with our County Council partners will be running four inclusion rugby camps in four clubs this July and August.
The Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby Inclusion Camps will be suitable for children and teenagers with intellectual disabilities. The camps will run over three days, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, each week. There will be a junior and senior group on each camp: 5-12-year-olds and 13-17-year-olds.
The aim of the inclusion camps is to provide children and teenagers with a learning and physical disability the opportunity to learn and play tag rugby in a safe, enjoyable and exciting environment and to build social skills and boost their confidence.
Tag rugby is a game that can be played by people of all ages, sexes and abilities, in a competitive and friendly way without and contact involved.
Stephen Gore Leinster Rugby Spirit Officer, “We are delighted to work alongside our clubs and Council Partners to make rugby accessible and inclusive for all across the province. It’s going to be a great summer of rugby and its brilliant to build on the success of the camps over the last few years.
“All the clubs involved have been brilliant in helping facilitate the camps. There has been a great uptake from the volunteers in the clubs to help coach on the camps.”
