This summer Ulster Rugby will roll out 22 camps across the Province from 4th July until 25th August for players of all ages and abilities.

This year will see the introduction of three-day School of Excellence camps for players aged 12-16 years, which have been developed in conjunction with Ulster Rugby’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 6-12 years, including at Lisburn RFC from August 1-5.

Meanwhile, for those rugby-mad girls, there will be two three-day girls youth camps at Clogher Valley RFC in Co. Tyrone and Cooke RFC in Belfast will cater for 12-18 year old girls.

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

Each year the Summer Camps have grown in popularity and since their launch in 2008, have welcomed over 11,000 participants.

Young players benefit from expert advice from qualified Ulster Rugby staff coaches with Ulster players on hand to give tips on the game, talk about life as a professional player and interact with the participants.

With places filling up fast, parents are encouraged to register quickly to avoid disappointment.
