THE GRIQUALAND West Primary Schools Rugby Association (GWPSRA) has issued invitations to the annual Craven Week Under-12 to Under-13 rugby festivals which will kick off age-graded training camps from June 19-22 at the Diamantveld High School sports complex.
This after a protracted lay-off after the GWPSRA had to take an unplanned leave of its tournaments as per the instructions of SA Rugby when the Covid-19 pandemic set in.
GWPRSA president Adriaan Laubscher has signed off on the executive team that will manage the Craven Week rugby festival over the two sets of week-long periods allocated for the juniors rugby festival.
Laubscher also endorsed team invitations and issued welcoming notes to parents of the Under-12 and Under-13 boys rugby squads that will take part in the tournament.
He confirmed that the opening of the most junior segment of the Craven Week rugby tournament will start with a welcoming formality and a colours handover ceremony will be conducted at the school’s premises starting at 6pm on Sunday, June 19.
A week after the conclusion of the Under-12 segment, the association will kickstart the senior segment of the tournament for Under-13 boys which runs from June 26 to July 1 in Kimberley.
