Thurles RFC

The Rugby Summer Camp will be run in conjunction with Premier Rugby and is open to boys and girls from 9 to 17 years
General Information below

Premier Rugby’s aim is to develop the knowledge and skills of rugby players of all levels between the ages of 9 and 17 years in a fun and active environment.

We will run two camps each day. The morning camp will run between 9am and 1pm and is for players aged between 9 and 12 years. The afternoon camp will run between 2pm and 6pm and is for players aged between 13 and 17 years.

Within these age groups, we will further sub-divide the players based on age and ability. In this way, we will most effectively cater for all skill levels, from the beginner to the advanced player.

The package includes 5 half day rugby camps together with a take home strength and conditioning programme which players can continue to use post camp.
