Time running out to avail of Early Bird on camps
June 2, 2015 12:00 am client
Only 3 days remain to book at the EARLY BIRD price of ?75 (finish on the 5th June-this Friday). Catering for boys and girls aged 6 to 12 years old The Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby Camps are back providing an action packed fun-filled week of rugby during the summer holidays.
The camps which run in 22 venues throughout the province during July and August will revolve around maximizing enjoyment and learning to play the Leinster way. This year will see a strong emphasis placed on the capacities of the players and the rugby specific coaching will be tailored to each individual group and conducted in an appropriate safe manner with the aim to optimise learning, create friendships, improve rugby skills and enhance rugby specific knowledge.
The typical week will see the camp content broken down into the various elements of the game and see each day take on a different aspect of skill development, taking it from an introduction level through to using it in fun game based activities. A special area that we will be focusing on this year will be at Mini Stage 2 (8-10 years old) and Mini Stage 3 (10-12 years old), where the players will learn and experience activities around coaching based techniques such as ‘Players on the Ball’ and ‘Players in Space’. This will see the coach’s guide and give an understanding of the skills that are needed in these areas of the game such as passing, evasion, tackling, decision making and general movement.
Billy Phelan, Manager of The Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby Camps, commented “With only three days until the Early Bird price of €;75 closes, we are really looking forward to meeting all the players on the camps this summer. We look forward to seeing the next batch of Leinster players come through our camps and break through into the men’s and women’s Leinster teams“.
Players will get:
- 5 days of coaching from 9.30am-1.30pm Monday to Friday trained by Leinster Rugby fully accredited IRFU coaches
- For boys and girls aged 6-12 years in 22 venues across the province
- Meet Leinster players
