The Galway Free Range Eggs Connacht Rugby Summer Camps return this year, and they are expected to be the most popular they have ever been with Connacht Rugby in the best state possible.

The summer camps have gone from strength to strength over the years and this will be their tenth anniversary. After last year's bumper event which had the best ever attendance rates.

Whether your child wants to be the next Robbie Henshaw or John Muldoon, they will be given the best possible chance to hone their rugby skills, enhance their talents, and most importantly they can make brand new friends in a friendly inclusive and fun environment.

The summer camps will be held at 13 different venues across the province, and will be run from Monday to Friday (9.30am to 2pm) starting in early July at a cost of €80 per child. These camps focus on the inclusivity of rugby, and this means they cater to every level of rugby player.

There is absolutely no experience required and crucially each youngster will be coached by Connacht's fully qualified and vetted members of staff.

In order for a child to reach their full potential in any sport, it is vital they get the best possible coaching and in the most comfortable environment in order for them to grow as a player.

With their grassroots to green shirts campaign, Connacht Rugby have shown in recent years that they have the structures in place to bring their players through, and they use some of the best coaching techniques in world rugby.

This summer your child could be on the verge of becoming the next big star at the province, and this summer camp could be the perfect stepping stone.
