US Sports Camps is pleased to announce a partnership with Cal Varsity Rugby and Head Coach, Jack Clark! Cal Rugby has one the most decorated histories in collegiate sports, including 26 National Championships since 1980 and we are thrilled to continue the tradition of youth rugby camps at University of California, Berkeley. Join the Cal coaches and current players for an unforgettable experience.
The Cal Varsity team has a long history of success based on superb skills and a winning attitude. These are qualities we want to share with your sons during camp. Our camp mixes Cal's rich rugby heritage with an innovative staff. The camp (for athletes ages 14 - 18) emphasizes safety and fun, while we remain on the cutting edge of rugby training. Our coaches bring with them the latest rugby skills, strategy and tactics from the international and professional arena. The camp's seminars with campus professionals increase awareness regarding academics, strength and conditioning, nutrition and drug awareness. Perhaps our best endorsement is the number of young men who have returned for a second, third, even fourth summer.
The overnight camp includes all rugby instruction, meals, housing and evening activities on campus. There is a commuter option from 8:30am - 6:00pm during the overnight camp session.

For those campers traveling from a distance, we offer an early arrival the evening of Sunday, July 27th. The fee is $90 and includes lodging in the Cal dorms, dinner that night, and breakfast the following morning. We’ll have a staff member living in the dorms to provide supervision.
