Want to beat the post holiday blues? What better way to blow the cobwebs away than a great bootcamp to load up your tool box ready for next season! With a whole host of world class coaches we want you to join us for an excellent day of learning, fun, and scrimmage. Fresh from their success at SKOD lll winning bronze, and with a successful campaign at the British Champs premier division seeing some close games against the likes of Auld Reekie, Central City want to share their secrets with you!
