The Leinster School of Excellence has been in existence for 20 years and is one of the most successful rugby camps in Ireland

The aim of the School of Excellence is to develop players and help them fine-tune their skills.

The content of the camp has developed with the game in recent years and as a result it has become the highlight of the summer for many players.

The camp provides boys and girls aged 12-17 with a comprehensive rugby package, allowing them to experience a week in the life of a professional rugby player.

Players attending can learn to play the Leinster Way as they gain a greater understanding of the game and learn about values such as teamwork, commitment, integrity, communication and building new friendships.

What sets the School of Excellence programme apart from any other rugby experience for boys and girls is the level of coaching on offer from professional rugby coaches and nutritional experts.

The programme has grown year-on-year, and in 2016 over 1,000 players, both boys and girls, took part.

Quite simply, if you are a rugby player aged 12-17 then Leinster School of Excellence is for you.
