Learn to play Leinster way at School of Excellence On Tour

Leinster'S School of Excellence On Tour caters for players aged from 10-16 who want to learn to play rugby the Leinster way.

The School of Excellence is taking place in Cill Dara RFC, Navan RFC and Wanderers FC from April 22-24 for a three-day fun-filled programme.

Players who participate in the camps will develop their skills, obtain a greater understanding of game awareness and learn about rugby values such as team work, commitment, integrity and communication.

Emphasis will be placed on other skills, including passing, evasion, kicking, tackling (in a controlled environment) and contact will be introduced depending on the age and ability of the group. Those attending will also gain a greater understanding of the importance of physical fitness and get the chance to make loads of new friends.

The attendees will be coached by Leinster Rugby-employed staff that all have a vast amount of experience in providing top-quality coaching to young teens.

To facilitate the appropriate attention given to each participant during the three days, the camp will be split into groups of 15 depending on their age.

Those in attendance will also get a chance to get their pictures taken with Leinster's silverware and get an official Canterbury t-shirt.

Most all of we guarantee lots of FUN! You will receive:
