Young rugby players in Wexford will have a chance to meet some of their heroes when the Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby summer camps come to their county this summer.
The camps will take place in 22 venues throughout the province in June, July and August. Wexford Wanderers will play host to a camp from June 29 to July 4, Gorey from August 3 to 7, and New Ross from August 10 to 14. The camps run Monday to Friday from 9.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m.
Recently, Rob Kearney, Fergus McFadden and Ian Madigan took time out from their busy training schedule to help launch the camps in Old Wesley Rugby Club in Dublin. These camps, which will take place in locations all across the province will offer children the chance to learn to play the Leinster way whilst having plenty of fun! The camps are run by fully-accredited I.R.F.U. coaches.
As well as learning new skills, meeting Leinster players, making new friends and having lots of fun, each child will receive a Canterbury of New Zealand pack including a t-shirt, a thrillseeker rugby ball and a Leinster draw string bag. They will also get one free Junior ticket to a selected Leinster game.
An early bird rate of €75 is available for children who enrol before June 5. After this date, the cost of attending the camp will be €90 per child. You can book a second camp for your child for just €60.
