The NIKE ELITE Rugby Camp at Stanford has sold out for the second straight year. Director of NIKE Rugby Camp at Stanford Matt Sherman is happy about the strong enrollment in 2013, "We are excited that following our first two years of ELITE Rugby camps at Stanford, many of our previous campers are returning in 2013 for the NIKE ELITE Rugby Camp. With over 130 campers signed up from around the world and the US, it is great to see so many young players interested in taking their game to the next level."
With seven locations, it is a busy summer for NIKE ELITE Camps. This Friday and Saturday prior to the USA vs. Ireland match, USA 7s stars Colin Hawley and Zack Test will lead instruction for over 75 young players in Houston.
"This is my second summer with NIKE ELITE Camps and seeing so many young kids progress as players and young adults during their time with us is awesome," said Hawley
NIKE ELITE's tradition of having USA Players lead instruction continues at all the other NIKE Rugby camps this summer. Colin Hawley and Chris Biller will train campers in San Diego at the Olympic Training Center, Zach Fenoglio and Shaun Davies will direct camp at Infinity Park in Denver, Mike Petri and Brian Doyle will lead camp at Adelphi in New York and Matt Sherman will host the first girls camp at Stanford.
"We’re thrilled to be holding the first NIKE ELITE Girls Rugby Camp this summer" Sherman said, "As girls and youth Rugby is exploding across the country, we look forward to the opportunity for young girls to develop their skills and have a great camp experience on the immaculate Stanford campus. Stanford has a long and storied tradition of rugby in the women’s game, and we look forward to sharing that with young female rugby players."t
