Leinster Rugby is delighted with the early uptake on the 2016 Bank of Ireland Leinster School of Excellence programme that will take place in The King's Hospital for a four-week period over July and August.

The Bank of Ireland Leinster School of Excellence programme is widely regarded as the best rugby experience for boys and girls aged 12-17 years.

Anyone who purchases at the Early Bird price of €375 for a residential camp and €275 for a non-residential camp before March 25 will receive a free junior ticket to the Leinster v Munster match in the Aviva on April 2.

There has never been a better time to book.

2016 promises to be an even better SOE and again we are producing a camp closer and closer to a standard week in the life of a professional rugby player.

All in all we think the 2016 SOE programme will be the best yet and will benefit all boys and girls who wish to attend.

Tom McKeown, manager SOE said: "We are well in to our plans around further improving SOE for 2016.

"The staff and coaches are really looking forward to another four week block and offering quality rugby experiences to the next pool of talent coming down the line.

"The feedback we received last summer was really encouraging and the players who attended have shown big improvements upon returning to their school or club.

"We are striving to mirror the camp to that of a week as a pro rugby player, along of course, with good fun in a safe environment.

"We hope to see all the old faces back this year along with as many new players as possible. Hope to see you there."

Camps take place from:

• July 18-22 (boys only)

• July 25-29 (boys only)

• August 1-5 (boys and girls camp)

• August 8-12 (boys and girls camp)
