Ulster kick off Summer Camps for future stars

By Robert Jones

Ulster Rugby and local convenience brand Centra have launched a new series of Summer Camps, including five new School of Excellence series.

The camps, which are sponsored by Centra and its independent retailers, will visit over 20 venues across Ulster from July 4 to August 25.

This year will see the introduction of the three-day School of Excellence camps for players aged 12 to 16-years-old, which have been developed in conjunction with Ulster's Director of Rugby Les Kiss and will be delivered by qualified Ulster Rugby staff.

The School of Excellence camps will take place at Friends School (Lisburn), Royal School (Armagh), Campbell College (Belfast), City of Derry RFC and Virginia RFC (Co Cavan).

Week-long junior camps will continue to run at 14 locations for boys and girls aged six to 12-years-old while two three-day girls camps at Clogher Valley RFC in Co Tyrone and Cooke RFC in Belfast will cater for 12 to 18-year-olds.

Newforge Sports Complex in Belfast will once again host a Special Needs Camp.

Information will be distributed to schools and rugby clubs across Ulster and parents can also book and pay for camps online.
