Great Coaches!

"Great camp, great coaches! As a parent who plays rugby I have always been impressed with the four camps we have attended. Coaches do a fabulous job and we have sent both boys to this camp since the very first year. On top of improving in his game,  he had a fantastic time hanging out with his fellow teammates and making new friends."

So Many Opportunities

"I posted to my players that the biggest thing I noticed at your camp was that it doesn't matter how athletic you are, attending the Nike Rugby Camp boosts a youth player's knowledge and ability for the future. Kids can become better at one of your camps than playing years with their current coaches. I'm grateful that our coaches are elite trained and are now able to provide so many more opportunities to our boys! THANKS NIKE RUGBY CAMP!"
