We want to expose more young rugby players to top-level coaching and bringing the camps to respected, highly visible schools gives us the best platform.
San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) April 07, 2015
US Sports Camps and Nike Rugby Camps recently announced the addition of new overnight rugby camps at several well-known universities including Duke, Michigan State, Oregon State, Arizona State, CU Boulder, and Rutgers. These new locations are in addition to the University of California, Stanford, University of San Diego, and Clemson. This brings the total number of universities hosting Nike Rugby Camps to 10.
“We’ve added some great schools and coaches this summer,” states Jason West, senior vice president for Nike Rugby Camps. “Aligning with big university brands hopefully brings more attention to the sport domestically. At the end of the day, we want to expose more young rugby players to top-level coaching and bringing the camps to respected, highly visible schools gives us the best platform.”
Nike Rugby Camps will offer overnight and day programs at most of its 10 locations in 2015. Instruction is provided by U.S. Rugby Hall of Fame members, Division I college coaches, and current/former members of the USA Rugby team. The curriculum places heavy emphasis on mastering fundamentals and improving overall technique. Age ranges vary by location, with some camps accommodating campers as young as 10. All Nike Rugby Camp locations are open to new players through highly competitive high school athletes.
“Our past success has been built around providing hands-on instruction to campers of all experience and skill levels, from America’s best coaches and players,” states Matt Sherman, head men’s and women’s rugby coach and Nike Camp director at Stanford University. “The results we have seen are campers improving dramatically, making great friends, and having a fun and rewarding experience."
