Summer camp season is quickly approaching and throughout the months of July and August, Upright Rugby Canada will deliver its TENTH summer of high-quality, educational, and professional, summer rugby camps.
These camps will once again bring the latest skills, drills, and rugby-based games to Ontario’s young and aspiring rugby players! All camps are endorsed and supported by Rugby Ontario and will feature a talented staff of current and former junior National team players, as well as guest coach appearances from Canada’s National team, and members of the Ontario Senior Blues Men's and Women's program.
