Letterkenny Rugby Club summer camp

Letterkenny Rugby Club summer camp

This three-day camp will focus on the core skills of rugby (catch-pass, evasion, tackle-technique) in a fun and safe environment.

Small-sided games will be used to improve player decision making and to aid the development of technical and tactical understanding. Previous experience of the game is not required. This camp will be player-centred with delivery by our coaches directed to the needs of the participants.

To attend this camp players must be eligible at u11s, u12s or u13s for the incoming 2021/22 season. Both male and female players are welcome.

Please ensure to book the correct camp for the age of your child.
U11: Born between 1/7/2010 and 30/6/2011 (30 places available)
U12: Born between 1/7/2009 and 30/6/2010 (30 places available)
U13: Born between 1/7/2008 and 30/6/2009 (15 places available)

Contact rugby will form a large part of our camp, therefore given the usual disparities that occur between children at different age groups i.e. height, size and weight, it is not possible to accommodate any child who does not fit into the above defined age grades, on grounds of safety and best practice.

Cost: €50. Each participant will receive a rugby ball. 50% of camp fee (after costs) will be donated to Donegal Down Syndrome.

Refund Policy: Cancellations made up to two weeks before the camp will receive a refund. Any cancellations made after this time will not be refunded.

Rugby Modules: The rugby activities across the camp will include the core rugby skills required by all to participate within the game. These skills will form the foundation of most activities and will be supported with the development of players’ tactical understanding of the game.
