connecting coaches with committed athletes
US Collegiate Development Camp
June 23 to June 26 @ Dartmouth
Boys age 14 to 19
Players will work with coaches from the top academic and rugby US universities, as well as staff from the High School & Collegiate All-American teams. This program is available for boys of all ability levels who are committed to continually learning the game. The camp begins a day after the USA Rugby RASTs in Portland, Pittsburgh, and Atlanta to accommodate our high-achieving rep-level players. It is crucial for players and coaches alike to work with each other in a multi-day training environment in order to accurately assess fit. This goes for national teams to university teams, and is why this program is for you.

US Collegiate Development aims to develop productive relationships between athletes and their potential future coaches. Our programs evolved in response to a need for a more effective environment to assess, develop, and connect student-athletes with collegiate coaches. It is our priority to educate these student-athletes on US rugby opportunities at both the university and national age-grade levels.
In the process, US Collegiate Development promotes players and coaches in a learning environment built on a desperation to excel at the fundamentals; a deep understanding of the organizational, tactical, and strategic methods of the game; a drive to lead through action and clarity; all formed on a high work-rate foundation. This is our DNA. This is who we are. Over the past decade our Ambassador coaches have worn this mantle well on the field as international players and have since evolved to become an elite collection of national champion coaches and educators in the U.S. and abroad.
