Ulster Rugby launch 2019 Subway Summer Camp programme

Ulster Rugby, along with title sponsor Subway, have announced details of the 2019 Summer Camp programme.

The summer camps will feature 21 camps at venues throughout the Province from 1st July until 14th August, offering a fun-filled programme of rugby training and games for boys and girls of all ages, abilities and rugby interests.

There will once again be four different types of camps; the established Junior Camps, School of Excellence Camps and Disability Rugby Camps, plus the hugely popular Digital Skills Camps.

The three-day Digital Skills Camps will be held at Kingspan Stadium, and are open to boys and girls going into P5-P71. Five-day Junior Camps, for boys and girls going into P3-P72, will continue to run at 11 locations across the Province. The six School of Excellence Camps, for more experienced players who are going into Year 8 – Year 11, and two Disability Rugby Camps (aged P3+) will each last for three days. All camps will run from 9am-1pm each day.

The focus of all camps is about enjoying rugby in a fun and safe environment, with young players benefitting from expert advice from IRFU qualified rugby coaches while Ulster professional players will also be on hand to give tips on the game, talk about life as a professional and interact with the participants.

Subway Ulster Rugby Camps offer great value with £70 the cost for a place on the Junior Camp, £50 for the Digital Skills Camps, £50 for the Disability Camps, and £90 for the School of Excellence Camps. Discounts are available for additional family members attending the same camp. Each participant will also receive a t-shirt, boot bag, rugby ball, water bottle, a Subway meal deal plus promotional codes to claim a free junior ticket to an Ulster game at Kingspan Stadium and a free stadium tour, including a visit to The Nevin Spence Centre.

Places on each camp are strictly limited, so parents are encouraged to book early to avoid disappointment.
