Leinster Lions Launch Bank of Ireland Summer Camps
April 25, 2017 / 4:25 pm / Marcus Ó Buachalla
The Summer Camps will take place in locations all across the province and will offer kids the chance to learn to play rugby the Leinster way whilst having plenty of fun!
Johnny Sexton, Seán O’Brien and Jack McGrath were joined at today’s launch by kids from St Marys NS, who all hope to someday emulate their rugby heroes. The Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby Summer Camps are open to boys and girls aged six to 12 and are run by fully accredited IRFU coaches.
The camps will take place in 27 venues throughout the province in July and August with the first camps getting underway on Monday, July 3rd. Each camp runs Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 1.30pm.
As well as learning to play the Leinster way, meeting Leinster players, making new friends and having lots of fun along the way, each child will receive a Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby pack including a Canterbury t-shirt and rugby ball. Each child will also get one free junior ticket to a selected Leinster game.
An early bird rate of €75 is available for children who enrol before the 2nd June. After this date, the cost of attending the camp will be €90 per child. You can book a second camp for your child for just €60.
Speaking at today’s launch, Laura Lynch, Head of Segments at Bank of Ireland commented, “We are delighted to sponsor the Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby Summer Camps. We’ve been supporting Leinster Rugby since 2007 and are particularly delighted to provide additional support to develop the domestic game in the province.
“The Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby Summer Camps is an excellent way to help develop the game with children across the province. The camps allow children to learn about the game, develop their skills and meet the Leinster players. We are proud to support Leinster Rugby and I am sure the camps will help Leinster Rugby discover future rugby stars”.
Lisa Doyle, Domestic Marketing Executive at Leinster Rugby added, “The camps really are such great value as the kids get to meet their Leinster heroes, free ticket to a Leinster home fixture as well as that they receive a Canterbury of New Zealand t-shirt and rugby ball.
“Last year our camps sold out and we’re sure the same will happen again this year. We’re really looking forward to providing an action packed fun filled summer in our camps in 27 venues across the province.”
