It is no secret that rugby programs like to recruit from thier American football 'cousins'. And why not? Similar collusion sport, controlled contact, running and evasion. Builds competition, confidence, comeradie and teamwork. All required qualities that kids need while they stumble through life. Rugby is here to help! (read about the latest love thrown to rugby by Seahawks coach Pete Carroll: "tackle like a rugby player!")
What about other sports? We focus on football during this study, only because it is so similar to rugby. But other programs would absolutely benfit from a rugby experience. Wrestlers make great rugby players. We have lacrosse and hockey players in our squads who love the contact and comeradie. Soccer and baseball players, swimmers, we have a place for you to develop attributes that will help you in your sport. For all of you there is a time during your busy calendar that you currently don't do sport. COME PLAY RUGBY! We now play year-round.
Remember, we are not interested in drawing your kids away. We would like to borrow them for a while (during your off-season) and send them back, fitter, stronger, smarter, and with improved general & tackling skills!
