LEINSTER Rugby is delighted to launch the return of the very popular School of Excellence summer programme.

Due to the increased interest in the programme, the School of Excellence is being extended from three to four weeks.

This year's dates are as follows:

Week 1: 21st July – 25th of July.

Week 2: 28th July – 1st of August.

Week 3: 4th August – 8th of August.

Week 4: 11th August – 15th of August.

Leinster Rugby offer both residential (players arrive Sunday evening before camp) and non-residential packages for this quality rugby experience. Whether you choose residential or a non-residential camp, you will live, breathe, eat and sleep rugby for the week like the Leinster professional players do. The level of coaching you will receive is superb and coaches include professional rugby players, current professional coaches from Leinster Rugby, Universities and All-Ireland League clubs.

The content of this year's camp has been modified to include information from every facet of the modern professional rugby player's life, including the following:

1) Professional nutrition

2) Professional, experienced coaches

3) In-depth video analysis (covering all aspects of the game)

4) Gym introduction for older groups

5) Swimming pool recovery sessions daily

6) Question & answer session with coaches upon completion of camp

The players will experience three one-and-a-half-hour focused rugby sessions daily driven to a specific outcome, as well as healthy eating and professional recovery to deal with the hectic schedule of a pro rugby player's lifestyle.

To book a place on the Leinster School of Excellence at the early bird price of €350 for residential and €250 for non-residential, visit www.leinsterrugby.ie.
