Connacht Rugby, in association with Galway Free Range Eggs, will be hosting three-day Easter Rugby Camps for boys and girls aged between six and 12-years-old in April.
The three events will take place in Castlebar RFC (April 11-13), NUIG RFC in Dangan Sports Campus (April 11-13) and Loughrea RFC (April 18-20) and cost just €50.
The camps will be run from 9.30am until 2pm with a 9am start on the first day for registration. Connacht Rugby coaching staff will guide the children through fun games and activities over the three days with each child receiving a complimentary rugby ball on the final day.
No rugby experience is necessary to attend, the Connacht Rugby Easter Camp is an introduction to the game of rugby in a safe and controlled manner and will be managed by fully accredited IRFU coaches.
Children who participate in the camps will get the chance to make new friends and learn more about rugby values such as team work, commitment and integrity.
They will also become more aware of the importance of physical fitness and will learn to develop the basic rugby skills of passing, tackling, evasion and kicking and perhaps most of all have a lot of fun to boot!

Connacht Rugby Easter Camp Guidelines
Each camp takes place over three days (Tuesday through to Thursday) between 9:30am and 2:00pm. If you need to collect your child earlier, please make clear arrangements with the Camp Administrator. If there are any underlying issues with child collection that we need to be made aware of, please inform the camp manager on the first day.
On Tuesday morning at the start of the camp, parents are requested to enrol their child/children between 9:00am – 9:30am. On enrolment children will be introduced to their coach for the three-days, so try and get there early!
