WALES' FIRST JUNIOR TOUCH MODULES ARE LAUNCHED
JUNIOR MODULES ESTABLISHED IN LLANDYSUL AND THE GOWER
Gorllewin Gwyllt are delighted to announce a first in Wales and possibly even Europe(!) The launch of two brand new junior Touch modules.
The chosen locations are both in west Wales; Gower and Llandysul (see map).
The Gower module is going to be administrated by one of the west's most successful senior Touch clubs, Gower Dragons, whilst the Llandysul module will be run by west Wales club, Gorllewin Gwyllt.
Both clubs enter senior teams in various competitions throughout the Touch season and have close links to the two representative regional teams, the Rebels (Swansea, Bridgend, NPT) and the Red Kites (Carms, Ceredigion, Pembs).
Gorllewin Gwyllt's, Matt explains;
"We're absolutely delighted to be able to offer kids in our area the chance to play Touch. The sport is hugely successful in both New Zealand - where it is the number one participation sport - and Australia where over 500,000 children are registered players.
The game focuses entirely on the skills of passing, avoiding and catching aspects of rugby, but without the tackling, scrums or line outs. This makes it a great proposition for children that are not ready for tackling or aren't interested in the physical aspects of rugby. It's also a great tool for rugby players to improve their skills and fitness."
Each module will commence with a launch event and several taster sessions, prior to the start of competitive games. The Llandysul 'Try Touch Night' will be on Friday 16 May, from 4.30pm. Details of the Gower Dragons event will be confirmed shortly.
