Youngsters who took part in the Hull FC Community Foundation’s Summer Rugby Camp at Hull Wyke last week have provided positive feedback following the sessions.
Part of the Community Foundation’s delivery of 800 hours of camps to local youngsters throughout the summer holidays, our staff visited local amateur club Hull Wyke to deliver four days of activities last week.
Ashton, who took part in the fun at Hull Wyke said: “I enjoyed all of the games that we got to play. We played a game called Shark Attack and that was lots of fun.
“We got taught how to run onto the ball properly and how to carry the ball hard, as well. It was really fun and I would love to come to another one!”
It wasn’t just boys taking part in the Hull Wyke camp. Emma, one of the girls taking part, said she enjoyed “showing the boys who was boss!”
Floss added that her favourite part of the sessions was “playing with her friends.”
The six-week programme, in partnership with Hull City Council, offers local youngsters the chance to get involved with over 800 hours of FREE sessions during the holidays.
Funding is provided to local authorities to coordinate free holiday provision, including healthy food and enriching activities for children.
The Hull FC Community Foundation has been identified as a key strategic partner and are working with Hull City Council and other partners across the summer holidays to provide programmes of coordinated activities to support families and enable children to have fun and stay active while away from the classroom.
The coordination of the Holiday Activity & Food offer will be delivered centrally in partnership with Hull Catering, Fareshare Hull and Humber and any other specific facility catering provision.
The camps are also part of the Black and Whites’ ongoing commitment to helping grow rugby league and develop players for the future, running alongside a host of projects and programmes to engage with, educate and inspire local juniors.
Camps vary from Rugby League, to disability multi-sports, as well as Wheelchair Rugby League, and variations of dance including contemporary, street dance and cheerleading.
There are still plenty of spaces remaining on several of our upcoming camps. For more information, or to book, click here…
For camps at local community clubs, U6s, U7s, U8s, U9s, U10s and U11s sessions take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, whilst U12s, U13s and U14s sessions take place on Thursdays and Fridays.
