College Connection

With Rugby making the transition to becoming fully supported by many colleges across the country it is important for high school athletes to understand the collegiate Rugby landscape and the recruiting process. It is also critical to establish formalized ways for prospective student-athletes and college coaches to connect. Nationally recognized Rugger’s Edge and Atavus have partnered to roll out professionally monitored recruitment formats for college coaches and student-athletes. These events will be modeled after those already established in other American sports, Ice Hockey, Lacrosse, Football, Basketball, etc.

  • Offers a series of college connection opportunities in conjunction with the USAR Academy training camps Powered By Atavus currently held around the country.
  • Provides aspiring student-athletes and current coaches an opportunity to connect in a professional environment.

World Rugby Shop Scholarship

Through our partnership with World Rugby Shop, scholarships are made available for our USA Rugby Academy high performance programming. With their generosity, we are able to grant aid to male and female athletes needing financial support in order to attend camps nationwide.

Athletes interested in applying for a scholarship to a USA Rugby Academy RESIDENT CAMP or TRAINING CAMP can fill out the Application on this page. Additionally, applicants are required to collect TWO (2) references. References can be completed by coaches, administrators, captains, referees, etc…

Applications will not be considered complete until both the application and TWO references have been submitted. It is the athletes responsibility to finalize their application. Please read the following drop down menu items before applying.

Due to Atavus’s partnership with World Rugby Shop, these scholarships are made available for our USA Rugby Academy High Performance programming. With their generosity, we are able to grant aid to male and female athletes needing financial support. The scholarship covers the full cost of registration for camp, but not travel to/from or other associated camp expenses.
Preference will be shown to candidates who would not otherwise be able to attend without financial support. Eligible applicants should be 15 years of age or older. We welcome all levels: high school, college, and club athletes are all encouraged to apply.
We and our partners at World Rugby Shop feel strongly that the game should be accessible to as many deserving athletes as possible. This is a way for us to recognize the passion, motivation, and hard work of some athletes for whom camp fees are an obstacle
An internal team will meet prior to each camp to consider submitted applications who made the deadline and grant scholarships. Once recipients have been decided upon, only those who have been selected will be notified by Atavus. Due to the increased number of incoming applications we regret to admit we are unable to respond to everyone.
