Scenes from last year's CSULB Youth Camp
In a sea of rugby camps this summer Cal State Long Beach is trying something different.
The college, working on a rugby resurgence under Kyle Quinn, will run a one-day camp for athletes who don't have the time to devote a longer period, but still want a special rugby experience this summer.
Munster and former Ireland U19 coach Ray Egan will run the camp and provide expert oversight, while former USA prop Chris Osentowski will handle the scrum, and former USA back Ray Green and Quinn (who played for USA A) will handle the backs.
"The idea is to give players take-aways that they can bring back to their clubs and help themselves and their teammates get better," said Quinn. "We want local kids to come to the camp and enjoy what we have to offer, and if they like the experience and want to come here as student and to play rugby, even better."
The one-day rugby camp, to be held on June 25 at the Cal State Long Beach campus. The cost is only $50 per player, and team discounts are available.
