Junior Rugby Camp a great success

Another hugely successful Junior Rugby Camp was held at Sardis Road during the half term school holiday, from Monday 19th through to Wednesday 21st February.

The Rugby Camps on the 3G pitch at Sardis have now become regular fixtures during school holidays and continue to be immensely popular both with children and parents.

The Junior Rugby Camp catered for children aged six to nine and was attended by boys and girls from the whole of the RCT area. Camps for older children, school years five and six, then seven, eight and nine will follow over the remainder of the half term break.

With the junior age group under-pinning the Pontypridd & Valleys Rugby Initiative, Pontypridd Schools coach Justin Burnell, who mentored the sessions, commented: “We are all passionate about the Initiative and the importance of community engagement. The Rugby Camps are key to promoting this message through the work of our coaches and we have been fortunate to utilise students from USW and Coleg Y Cymoedd to help and to observe during the sessions.”


Due to increasing popular demand, the intention is to run the Kids Camp for a full week during the Easter Holiday. All children who participated in the February Junior Camp will be rewarded with an invitation to be ‘Guard of Honour’ for the Pontypridd v Carmarthen Quins match on Saturday 3d March, including top trainer Oliver, who received his City West award from Garyn Vivien of USW (Pictured).
