Serevi™ has announced a dedicated slate of women’s programming to kick off with a Training Camp to be held at Harvard University January 12-13, 2013. U.S. National Team Coach Ric Suggitt will coach alongside Serevi Rugby coaches Emilie Bydwell and Richie Walker. Designed for female rugby athletes in both high school and college, the program will focus on the consistent execution of core skills under increasing levels of pressure.
Says Serevi’s Walker, “We’re determined to create pathways for female rugby players to competitive college programs and, ultimately, to the national team. When Harvard stepped forward to elevate women’s rugby to varsity status, we knew we had the perfect partner for our first East Coast Training Camp and in our passion for the women’s game.” Adds Bydwell, “Associate Director of Athletics Tim Wheaton and Coach Bryan Hamlin have been extremely supportive and welcoming with field space. We look forward to two spectacular days of women’s rugby on this storied campus.”
Says Harvard’s Hamlin, “We’ve been following Serevi Rugby’s work on the women’s game and leapt at the chance to offer space for their women’s programming. We’ve heard great things about the Training Camp series and the opportunity to add Coach Suggitt to the mix was a tremendous bonus. We’re thrilled to host Serevi Rugby and some of the Northeast’s finest female rugby athletes.”
San Diego, Seattle and other markets will also host Women’s Training Camps. Bydwell, Walker and Suggitt will also collaborate on invitation-only high school and college women’s Serevi Rugby Academies at the Chula Vista Olympic Training Center in June and July 2013.
