The Munster Rugby Girls School of Excellence at Bandon Grammar School in Co. Cork took place earlier this month.
The three-day camp, which is in its second year, provides girls aged 13-17 with the opportunity to develop their rugby skills and understanding through a game sense and technical excellence approach.
Over 120 girls from clubs throughout the province took part in a structured rugby development programme which included core skill development, game understanding, position specific workshops, appropriate strength and conditioning training and teamwork.
This all took place in an enjoyable but challenging environment where players were encouraged to develop their all-round rugby ability. Throughout the week the players received top class coaching from Munster Rugby coaches.
We paid a visit to the Munster Rugby Girls School of Excellence and we spoke to Head Of Rugby Development Colm McMahon and Club Community Rugby Officer and current Munster Senior Women’s player Abbie Salter-Townshend who provided an overview of the three days.
Munster Rugby players Liam Coombes and John Hodnett also paid a visit and conducted a Q&A session with the players.
