On Friday 4th July 2014, Orkney RFC held the annual Summer Camp Rugby Activity Day. Despite the mild and wet conditions the day was still able to be held outside on the Pickaquoy outfield pitches. The day ran for a total of 5 hours with a total of 42 kids involved throughout the day.
First of all was the P1-3’s from 10am – 12noon who all showed that their Tag Rugby skills were at a very high level considering the age of the kids. The P4-7’s were then from 1pm – 3pm who showed that their knowledge and experience of the game of Tag Rugby was at a level to compete with the coaches involved within the session. Within both age groups we were able to cover a massive range of activities such as assault courses, ball skills/exercises, Tag bulldogs, Stadium ball, Tag Rugby games and even some kicking & catching.
Orkney DO Bruce Ruthven said:
On the whole the day was a massive success. This was down to all kids showing a great amount of enthusiasm for the game and also all the coaches involved within the session/s. Coaches involved within the day were – Bruce Ruthven, Mark Sinclair, Ryan Arcus, Taylor PT, James Nicolson, Daria Byers, Hannah stead and Keira Johnston.
