The uOttawa Gee-Gees offer the only specialized rugby camp of its kind. This is an excellent opportunity to learn from the best. With access to the most current standards, skill assessment protocols and player development tools in the country, uOttawa Gee-Gees coaching staff, along with current members of the Gee-Gees rugby team, will help develop current athletes into future CIS players and potential Olympians. Campers will be working alongside current members of the Gee-Gees, Team Quebec and Team Canada.

Coaches:

  • Jen Boyd, Head Coach uOttawa Gee-Gees/ Women’s U20 Canada Head Coach
  • Andrew Armstrong, Assistant Coach uOttawa Women’s Gee-Gees
  • Members of the uOttawa Gee-Gees
  • Guest coaching appearances from current and former National team members

This camp is intended as two-fold: an introduction to rugby to new players and a reintroduction to rugby for experienced players. The program is intended to safely introduce new or inexperienced players to the game of rugby in a small group setting. There will be a low athlete to coach ratio throughout the week

More experienced players will be challenged to improve their current level of play. Skill development will be organized by age, ability and gender where appropriate. Training focuses on general skills needed by all players while working with specialized positions. There will also be focus on team tactics, both on offense and defense.

Skills learned include: pass-catch, Y-Lines, contact/breakdown, tackle set piece, place kicking, etc.

Activities include: free swims at the uOttawa pool, a wide variety of skills and drills, flag rugby tournament, etc.
