ELITE Rugby Camp USA and World Rugby Shop are proud to announce a partnership in their shared mission to provide high quality summer camps and promoting the growth of youth rugby in America.
ELITE Rugby USA has a strong tradition of hosting top flight rugby camps. 2012 will be no different as ELITE is hosting camps at four of the top rugby facilities in America: Infinity Park Glendale July 9-12, Stanford University-Steuber Stadium July 13-16, University of Oregon July 19-22, and the Olympic Training Center at Chula Vista July 25-28.
ELITE Rugby brings the highest level of coaching to their camps. ELITE is dedicated to providing campers with coaching from current and former players and coaches from the All-America, USA National 7s and USA National 15s teams. World Rugby Shop, the American leader in rugby equipment and apparel will be helping to outfit ELITE camps with equipment and apparel so that players will not only receive the highest quality of instruction and facilities, but also equipment and apparel to provide them with the best camp experience possible. This partnership will promote the best environment to grow and develop rugby players in America.
Both ELITE and World Rugby Shop are excited about the growth of their new partnership and the impact it will have on young American rugby players. ELITE Rugby USA Director Ethan Willis notes, "We hope to inspire young rugby players to achieve their goals on and off the rugby field. By providing players with top flight coaching, facilities and now equipment from World Rugby Shop we are able to show players that rugby is important in America and they are important as players."
World Rugby Shop’s Brad Kilpatrick echo’s those sentiments, ‘As a Rugby company, we are dedicated to growing Rugby in the US at the youth level and also at the elite level. It is important to grow both the quality and quantity of rugby in the country. ELITE rugby camps allow us to do both of those things while partnering with an excellent organization focused on bringing a quality experience and program to players across the country. We are thrilled to be forming this partnership and are looking forward to a great 2012 for rugby in the US.’
