The Connacht Rugby Summer Camps, in association with Galway Free Range Eggs, are back by popular demand for 2017, with extra venues added across the province.

The camps take place over five days for boys and girls aged 6-12, with no rugby experience necessary.

They are an introduction to the game of rugby in a safe and controlled manner and will be managed by fully accredited IRFU coaches.

The Camps cost just €80 and take place from Monday-Friday running from 9.30am-2pm daily with a 9am start on the first day for registration.

Children who participate will get the chance to make new friends and learn more about rugby values such as team work, commitment and integrity - and they will also meet a Connacht player!

They will learn to develop the basic rugby skills - and, most important of all, have a lot of fun!
