Albany, NY - Rugby NY has announced its 2012 series of High School Player Development Camps.
This year Rugby NY will be hosting two camps, one in the Buffalo area and another in the Albany area. Each camp will consist of a Friday evening session and a second day-long session on Saturday. The camps will be led by USA Rugby coaches assisted by USA Rugby national team players and local senior club and college coaches.
The camps are an ideal way for high school teams to kick off their spring season. High School boys and girls of all experience levels are welcome and the program will be tailored so everyone will benefit regardless of rugby experience.
The camps are also open to coaches. USA Rugby will award coaching development CEU credits towards ongoing certification to all coaches that attend.
