Ballyshannon Rugby player Maeve Liston will take part in a Women’s Emerging Talent Day at they National Sports Campus in Abbotstown today.
The camp is designed to introduce players identified from provincial development staff and through the Under-18 and Senior IRFU Women’s Inter-Provincial Championship to the high performance arena.
Liston is one of 21 players selected to take part in the event and is one of only three from Ulster, alongside Kathryn Dane and Neve Jones.
The players will be educated around Mobility Preparation, Recovery Strategies, Performance Nutrition and Strength & Conditioning, and will also be guided through the national programme’s key criteria for their individual positions while participating in two on-field rugby sessions.
Ireland Women’s head coach Adam Griggs commented: “The aim of this Emerging Talent Day is to have a closer look at players who have been identified as having the potential to go on and play at a national level over the coming years.
“This comes on the back of a very successful time for the Women’s Performance Programme, as a result of the success of the Ireland Under-18s Sevens over the summer and on the back of the Under-18 and Senior Interprovincial Championships, which really highlights the youth coming through in both forms of the game.Tags:
