Over the past few seasons we have been aware that youth players have increasingly been attending the gym to improve their strength and athleticism. Gym work can be hugely beneficial to rugby players, athletes and all teenagers if done correctly and supervised by appropriate coaches. However, if done incorrectly it can be hugely detrimental to a players development and increase the risk/frequency of injury.
With this in mind, Boyne RFC are offering an 8 week program over the summer to the Under 16's (1999 birthday) through to the Under 19's (1996) which will target Strength & Conditioning and ball skills.
The program will start On Tuesday June 24th and will run each Tuesday & Thursday for 8 weeks, finishing on Thursday 21st August.
ex Munster, Leinster & Boyne player Niall Ronan (incoming Director of Rugby) will be coaching the Strength & Conditioning module with Boyne Senior Coach Mike Walls coaching the skills module. The focus will be on core strength, mobility, strength & agility and ball skills.
The program will develop a pathway for the under 16 through to under 19 which builds on previous years to enable the under 19 to progress seamlessly to adult rugby.
Depending on numbers we will split the group by age with sessions as follows:
Tuesday & Thursday 10:00 - 11:45 (Session 1)
11:45 - 1:30 (Session 2)
The cost of the 8 week program is €50 (or €4 per session if preferred).
If you are interested in attending these sessions please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can estimate numbers and confirm the schedule.
