Children’s Tag Rugby summer camp at Ennis RFC


The Children’s Tag Rugby Clare summer camp was held last week at Ennis Rugby Club.

Children learned the skills of tag rugby, such as throwing and catching, passing, tagging and scoring tries. There were other activities such as a treasure hunt, crazy soccer, parachute games, relays and crossbar challenges.

The children also enjoyed playing tag rugby games and demonstrated some of the fine skills learned during the week in the exciting final tag rugby games on Friday.

The children were treated to a nice surprise on Friday with the arrival of the ice cream van to top off a super week.
