Summer Camps Conclude

The 2019 Sligo Rovers Summer Camps, sponsored by The Sligo Champion have come to a close after eight hugely successful weeks in The Showgrounds.

The Summer Camps which began on July 1st brought hundreds of children to The Showgrounds, in what was an action packed summer for everyone involved.

This was the first year in which the club brought foreign exchange students to the camp, with over 50 international students attending from countries such as Spain, Italy and France.

The Breakfast Club proved extremely popular once again, selling out for three of the eight weeks with the children eating their breakfast in The Showgrounds while also meeting members of the first team squad before the camp commenced each day.

Camp co-ordinator, Shane Crossan, spoke of his delight at how well the camps went while also paying tribute to the coaches. He added

“2019 has proven to be the biggest year for Summer Camps in the clubs history and that is something I am very proud to say.

“The success of the camps year in year out would not be possible without the hard work of the coaches who have proven very popular amongst the kids yet again.

“I would like to pay tribute to Lorraine Mc Donnell in The Sligo Champion and to all of her staff who sponsored our Summer Camps yet again this year. To have such a strong local brand supporting our camps is an honour and a testament to the camp itself.

“Finally I would like to thank all parents who brought their children to The Showgrounds this Summer as without their support and trust the Sligo Rovers camps would not be the success they are today.

Sligo Rovers Football Club would like to wish all of the children the very best of luck as they return to school and we look forward to welcoming them all back again at our Halloween camp in October. Full details of the Halloween Camp will be released in the coming weeks.
