Players, ages 9-17, attend from across the globe to improve their game with some of the nation’s best coaches and former professional players.
“The camp in San Diego is our flagship,” says Jason West, senior vice president for Nike Rugby Camps. “We’ve offered a consistent, quality rugby experience for a decade now and we’re still going strong. It all comes down to having a great staff that truly wants to pass on their knowledge and passion for the game to the next generation.”
