#SummerOfFun a huge success

Community rugby made its long-awaited return this Summer after 18 months of lost fun due to the pandemic.

During the past two months, 1047 children have joined us and the Welsh Rugby Union across 10 different locations in a bid to inspire the next generation of rugby stars into the sport and get them back out onto the field.

Working closely with local children’s charities and young people’s services, we reserved over 300 places to ensure our camps were accessible and available to those who may not have had the opportunity to attend before.  

WRU hub officers delivered the camps alongside our very own staff and volunteers.

As well as working alongside the WRU to host free camps out of rugby clubs around the community, we made our long-awaited to return to Llandarcy Academy of Sport for our ever-popular 3-day camps.

For the first time in our history, we also hosted our first ever Inclusive Community Camp led by WRU Disability Rugby Co-ordinator, Darren Carew at Coleg Cymunedol y Dderwen where children of all abilities and ages were welcomed to try out the sport in a day filled with fun.

Four of our rugby camps were also part of the fit and fed campaign where over 450 meals were rustled up by Castell Howell, Carolyn Harris MP and the clubs themselves to help combat the holiday hunger.

On behalf of everyone at Ospreys in the Community, we would like to thank the following clubs for hosting our free rugby camps: Maesteg Quins RFC, Gowerton RFC, Ystradgynlais RFC, Pyle RFC, Fall Bay RFC, Morriston RFC, Pencoed RFC, Aberavon Quins RFC, Coleg Cymunedol Y Dderwen and Llandarcy Academy of Sport tor hosting our 3-day camp.
