The Play Rugby USA Academy is a U-19 side for select male and female high school rugby players

 

Players are selected based on the 4 A’s:
Academics, Attendance, Attitude and Athletics

 

The Academy’s purpose is to not only develop players on the field and provide pathways to the top levels of rugby, but most importantly to help them develop excellence off the field. We achieve this through holistic coaching techniques focused on social and emotional skills development as well as athletic progress.
