For players aged 15+, the USA Rugby Academy High Performance Training Camps are multi-day camps carried out in various cities across the country. Working with USA Rugby National Team coaches, the High Performance Training Camp allows aspiring players to be seen in competitive formats; to challenge and calibrate themselves against other aspiring athletes; and to align their skills and training to the national high performance standards. By distributing the program to regional hubs – bringing high performance coaches to players – we have the opportunity to maximize participation of talented athletes, while moderating the time burden and cost implications of national team selection and training sessions. USA Rugby coaches have crafted programming to identify and develop performance-critical areas in athletes looking to take their rugby careers to the next level. USA Rugby Academy High Performance Training Camps emphasize skill development, unit skills, situational awareness and decision-making for seasoned players, all while providing opportunities for high-potential crossover athletes new to rugby.
The High Performance Training Camp is a rotating series for players to work directly with and have exposure to the coaches of:
USA Rugby Men’s Programs USA Rugby Women’s Programs
Eagles XV Eagles XV
Eagle 7s Eagle 7s
Collegiate All-Americans Collegiate All-Americans
USA U20s USA U20s
High School All-Americans High School All-Americans
Athletes will receive a unique national team experience being able to work with Serevi® and USA National Team coaches in an environment with a low player:coach ratio. The men’s and women’s camps often run in parallel, with staff specifically catered to the development of male or female athletes. Players will be further segmented by age and skill to maximize individual learning and potential according to ability and ambition. This camp’s talent identification component serves to funnel talent into the USA XVs and Olympic 7s pools. Those athletes demonstrating appropriate mix of skill, athleticism and potential will then be invited to our multi-day Elite Resident Camps where they will train in an immersive, high-performance environment with Serevi® and USA National Team coaches. While participation in the USA Rugby Academy High Performance Training Camps is not a mandatory component for national team consideration, it is a training interval that establishes the quality and increases the consistency of player preparedness for high-level competition and the national teams.
