Tralee try out skills

Tralee RFC hosted a National Schools 'Give it a Try' rugby skills day for girls from four National Schools in the Tralee area last month.

The event was run in association with the Kerry Sports Partnership Programme and the IRFU National Schools Play Rugby Programme.

The schools were visited by the Tralee RFC/Munster club community rugby officer Sean Brosnan, who gave the pupils the experience of playing tag rugby and being coached fundamental rugby skills through fun in a safe environment.

This was the third girls' "Give it a Try' day at Tralee RFC and continues the goal of the club to promote girls' rugby and achieve its campaign to have its own girls' section at all age grades, from U-8s to senior adult.

Following on from the success of the previous 'Give it a Try' days, Tralee now has its own U-13s girls training day at the club every Saturday and will be beginning midweek training for this age group from next Wednesday at 7.0.

Tralee RFC's ladies' team is also very active and trains twice weekly; new members of any and all skill levels are welcome.
