Serevi Rugby® is thrilled to be coming back to Chicago for our annual Training Camp! We'll be at Chicago Blaze Rugby Club's spectacular facilities June 19-20, 2013. Chicago's own Aaron Manheimer will join Coach Aussie Matt for two days of spectacular training in the Windy City.

This year's Training Camp will be led by Aaron Manheimer, national title winning coach of the Chicago Lions and member of the Collegiate US All-American coaching staff. Returning with Aaron will be Coach Aussie Matt of the USA Falcons, and special guest coach Peter Tiberio of the USA Eagles. This is going to be an incredible rugby experience for players of wide ranging abilities (we segment based on age, gender & ability to ensure that everyone is appropriately challenged).

There's no better place to be noticed  -- Serevi Rugby® is now officially part of the Olympic Indentification System.
