To celebrate 21 years of excellence at the Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby School of Excellence and the new five-year sponsorship deal that will see adidas become the official kit partner to all Leinster Rugby teams, all participants that sign up for the 2018 School of Excellence will be in with a chance to win the brand new 2018/19 Leinster Rugby home jersey.

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 the School of Excellence 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 nutrition experts.

This year’s impressive line up of guests speakers was also announced recently, with Leo Cullen, Stuart Lancaster, John Fogarty and Emmet Farrell all confirmed.

The programme has grown year-on-year, and in 2017 over 1,000 players, both boys and girls, took part in the summer programme.
