It gives me great delight in inviting all girls, aged 8-14, to participate in the IRFU Girls “Give It A Try programme” during April, May & June in conjunction with Old Welsey RFC. This programme is designed by the IRFU to introduce girls to the game of rugby in a fun & supportive environment. The core ambition of the programme is to provide each player with a positive rugby experience, with the hope that they consider becoming a member of Old Wesley RFC at the commencement of next season in September.

As Girls Rugby Co-ordinator I am personally leading the GIAT programme again this year and will be attending sessions to support the activities that are taking place. We are also looking at bringing in some older female players to assist with the coaching so that the attendees can have role models to look up to.

The start of the GIAT programme coincides with the week leading up to the final round of the Guinness Women’s 6 nations matches. Having this in the background should hopefully heighten the excitement for young female players to be involved with the game of Rugby.

Our 8 week programme takes place at Wesley College, Balinteer starting on Wednesday 24th April from 7.00pm to 8.00pm. Each participant will receive a GIAT IRFU t-shirt and, with a small fee, we will be having a social finale at the end of the 8th week.

We appreciate any and all support in spreading the word about the “Give It A Try” programme throughout your social and professional network. Please feel free to contact Chris Steele with any questions about the programme on girlsrugby@oldwesley.ie

Yours in Rugby,

Chris Steele
