For over four hours every day last week, the children, aged from 7 to 15 took part in sports, including trying new things like Gaelic sports and lacrosse.
“It’s a multi-sports event to discover some new sports but also to develop hand-eye coordination,” Ecole de Rugby head coach Paul Sweetnam explained.
Among the experts flown in for the camp were former professional basketball, rugby union and rugby league player and actor Danny Ligairi-Badham, Luxembourg national player coach Scott Browne and Canadian women’s rugby performance coach James Kent.
In addition to the professional coaches, a handful of local volunteers including some under 18s helped out.
“It was exhausting but lots of fun. We had kids of all sorts of different nationalities and languages,” Sweetnam said on the final day of the camp.
RCL will organise a second rugby camp for players of all ages and experience levels from 28 August-1 September. To register or find out more, email [email protected]
