The Ospreys and their main sponsor, npower renewables, are leading the way in grass roots rugby development with the launch of their first ever Easter camps for over 350 eight to eleven year olds. The camps, which are being held in Neath, Swansea and Bridgend, will provide Ospreys Juniors from across the region with the opportunity to develop their rugby skills under the expert guidance of highly trained coaching staff. The children will also have the chance to meet some of their Ospreys heroes during the week.
The camps will be running from Monday 17th until Friday 21st April at Pencoed Comprehensive School in Bridgend, St.Helen’s Ground in Swansea and Cwrt Herbert in Neath, confirming the Ospreys’ commitment to regional rugby.
Each camp will consist of five half day coaching sessions concentrating on both individual and team skills, as well as educational diet and lifestyle theory sessions, visits from Ospreys players, a complimentary ticket for the Scarlets match at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday 18th April, along with other Ospreys goodies, an attendance certificate and refreshments. npower renewables in association with the Ospreys is also offering three children the chance to be mascots for the day at the Llanelli match on Tuesday 18th April. A draw will be made on the Tuesday and three lucky Juniors will have a chance to walk onto the pitch at the Liberty Stadium with the Ospreys team prior to the match.
“The Ospreys Easter camp is a brilliant opportunity for children across the region to learn new skills from expert coaches and have the chance to meet members of the squad. This is a week for enjoyment, participation for children in the Ospreys community and at the same time we will have the advantage of being able to spot talent for the future!”
Mark Legerton, Development Manager for npower renewables projects in Wales said:
“npower renewables is delighted to be involved so closely with the development of grass roots rugby through the Ospreys Easter Camps. Our involvement with the camps and the recent announcement of our two year deal to sponsor the Junior Ospreys Cup are just two examples of npower renewables’ ongoing commitment to developing and supporting rugby at all levels in the Ospreys region. We are also pleased to announce that one child from each of the camps will have the chance to be an Ospreys mascot at the Llanelli match on 18th April.”
Kevan Tee, Managing Director of Atlas Sports Academy said:
“We have worked extremely hard to ensure the Ospreys events are well supported and to make sure that the kids have the best available facilities and coaches. The Easter Coaching Clinics are a great new way for The Ospreys to get involved with all districts within their Region – who knows where the next Rugby Superstar will emerge from?”
