Summer camps filling up fast in province as interest remains high
Published 22/05/2015 | 02:30
The ever popular Munster Rugby Summer Camps begin in just over a month, with places filling up fast.
This summer, the camps take place in 22 venues until August (see below for your nearest venue).
Camp places are available for boys and girls from 6-12 years old. Each camp takes place over one week (Monday-Friday inclusive) between 9.30am and 1.30pm.
The cost is €85 per child. Additional children from the same family can attend for the discounted rate of €75 per child.
There is an online booking facility on the Munster Rugby website where you can also download the Summer Camp Application form.
Each participant will receive an official Pack comprising an Adidas T-shirt, shorts, socks, draw-string bag, mouth guard and one junior ticket to a Munster pre-season match.
Children will get the chance to make new friends, learn more about rugby values such as teamwork, respect and integrity, and also become more aware of the importance of physical fitness - all while developing the basic rugby skills of passing, tackling (in a controlled environment), evasion and kicking.
Most of all we guarantee lots of fun!
To facilitate the appropriate attention, participants will be divided by their age into groups. Central to the Munster Rugby Summer Camps' philosophy is ensuring the introduction to the game of rugby in a safe and controlled manner.
The Camps will be managed and run by fully accredited IRFU mini rugby coaches. All Summer Camp staff have undertaken the National Garda Vetting process.
