Who We are:
UYHC are one of York University's largest sports clubs on campus with over 80 members. We have 6 outdoor teams (3 mens/3 womens) and 4 indoor teams (2 mens/2 womens), all of which will compete at Roses and will benefit hugely from the camp we aim to provide.
Roses is Europe's largest inter-university sports tournament and this year sees the 51st edition which is set to be one of the biggest yet with York Sport also raising money to ensure the opening ceremony and indeed the rest of the tournament is a complete success. History is on the side of York, who have 25 wins compared to Lancaster's 24, with only the one draw. The Carter James trophy currently lies with Lancaster and this April, York will do everything in its power to reclaim it. UYHC will play a large role in this task. With many points at stake, our club can make the difference, but to give us the best chance of success, we need to be fully fit and at the top of our game. That is why we need a pre-Roses training camp.
We have been stretched financially this year and whilst York Sport are providing us with limited support which gives us a start to the project, we cannot provide our teams with a camp without your help!
Donations would be massively appreciated, however big or small, and whether you are planning to watch Roses from the sidelines of the JLD or will be eagerly awaiting updates from our social media channels, your donations will hopefully give us the boost we need to triumph over our Lancaster counterparts.
so, Where will the money go?
- Pitch Hire (Outdoor: £37 per hour/Indoor: £22 per hour)
(37 x 18hrs = £666) + (22 x 6hrs = £132) = £798
- Coaches (£20 per hour)
20 x 24hrs = £480
- Use of gym for spin classes, yoga etc. = c. £200
*There is, of course, no limit to how intense we make this camp and so the more money we raise, the better the training camp! We believe £1,500 would provide us with a great camp, but we would like to push for an even better one if possible!
