Old Penarthians rugby camps are a summer holiday success
7:50am Thursday 2nd August 2012 in Sport
WEATHER more likely to be encountered in the south of France than South Wales greeted more than 30 boys and girls taking part in the first of the Old Penarthians rugby camps at Cwrt y Vil Playing Fields.
During the event on Wednesday (July 25), the morning session included three stations where children were coached in various types of kicking, passing and agility skills. Games were then played to show how the sessions had helped improved the children’s skills.
After a well-earned break and lunch in the cooler surroundings of the club, the children participated in a rugby quiz. The afternoon session was again divided into three stations, with the emphasis on decision making, attack and defence.
Once the camp finished, each child was provided with a commemorative T-shirt courtesy of the camp sponsors, Clarke and Hartland Solicitors. All the coaches and helpers were pleased to see such a good attendance. What made it worthwhile were the smiles on all the children’s faces at the end of the day.
The last rugby camp takes place on August 8 and will run from 10am to 3pm. The cost for the day is £15 and includes a cooked lunch and refreshments. All participants must bring mouthguards, change of clothing (if wet), and suitable rugby boots/shoes.
If your child is currently in year 4, 5 or 6 and would like to take part, please call Stuart Clarke on 07866 777920 to book a place.
