“Zenon really enjoyed himself on this trip. For a 10-year-old to travel to France and not even text is a testament to PSA Academies. From arrival until departure, he had so much fun, mixed with hard work and skill development. He made lots of friends and will definitely be back next year.” Paul, Dublin


“Finn had a great time with PSA Academies in Tignes. He loved it and came back full of stories and thoroughly exhausted, all signs of a great camp. Thanks to everyone involved, he is already asking to go again next year.” – Jo, Kildare


“Starting with his trip to Tignes in 2016 that Calum thoroughly enjoyed, PSA Academies are helping us to meet the undoubted need for a professional, holistic programme for the continuous development of the all-round rugby player and way of life. In other words, ‘maximising his potential.’ We’re big fans” – Pat, Kildare
