Ulster Camogie Elite Camp for under 16’s
Ulster Camogie recently ran a successful 2 day intensive training and educational camogie camp for 21 of Ulster’s top Camogie players at u16 grade.
21 players were invited to attend through a mixture of hand picked selections -based on performances during this summer’s u16 Ulster Championship – and county board/management nominations. The players were treated to a 2 day residential camp packed with some top coaching, education, advice and ‘Target Goal Setting’ provided by Ulster Camogie Council staff with the assistance from Ulster GAA.
UUJ Campus provided the facilities for the camp where the girls not only excel on the training field but also formed a number of new friendships.
