The Ospreys are relaunching the popular Rugby Camps for children in conjunction with Llandarcy Academy of Sport.
The Academy, the training home of the Ospreys and part of NPTC Group, commercial partners of the region, will host the new look camp during the forthcoming Easter holidays with young rugby players of all abilities welcome to sign up for one, two or three days.
The Rugby Camps will be run by fully qualified and DBS checked Ospreys coaches, who will focus developing a child’s rugby ability as well as their personal and social skills.
The aim will be to challenge and develop all the children through a number of fun activities, games and drills. The children will be grouped on the basis of their age and ability for maximum development.
The highlight of the Rugby Camp will be daily visits from Ospreys players who will take part in Q&As and meet the children for photos and to sign autographs.
Each child registered for the Rugby Camp, which costs just £30 per day or £70 for all three days, will receive an Ospreys goodie bag, a free meal at Frankie and Benny’s and a ticket for the huge PRO12 clash with high flying Glasgow at the Liberty Stadium at the start of May.
Andrew Hore, Chief Executive of Ospreys Rugby, said:
“It’s fantastic that we are now able to relaunch our Rugby Camps for children in the region to get out and experience for themselves the fun and enjoyment that can be had when you pick up a rugby ball.
“We are grateful to our partners at Llandarcy Academy of Sport for their assistance in enabling us to get this operational in time for the Easter holidays. I’ve no doubt that this will prove to be a huge success, and we’ll be looking to expand our school holiday activity later in the year.”
Wyn Evans, General Manager, Llandarcy Academy of Sport, said:
“We are absolutely delighted to be teaming up with the Ospreys to add these Rugby Camps to our already busy schedule for sporting activities for children during the school holidays.
“Our relationship with the Ospreys is a long and successful one, and the Rugby Camps will only enhance that relationship, providing local children with a great opportunity to learn rugby skills in a safe and friendly environment with like minded friends, new and old.”
