Nike Rugby Camps offer players the individualized coaching needed to improve their skill-set and gain a deeper understanding of the game. Our curriculum is the perfect blend of expert coaching, constructive drills, and fun evening activities. With two outstanding coaches in Ethan Willis and Matt Sherman, players can leave at the end of the week with a greater confidence and passion for the game.
The overnight camp includes key fundamental drills, team strategies, match play, meals, housing and evening activities. The day camp (9:00am - 4:00pm) includes all rugby instruction and lunch. Day campers will be dropped off and picked up at the end of each day at the Francis Parker School.
