ATAVUS x Rugby. Team Up For FREE T
Over the recent months, we’ve collaborated with ATAVUS on a couple projects as they shifted their name from SEREVI to expand their relentless pursuit of teaching and molding the future players of American Rugby at all levels. New Name, Same Game.
ATAVUS continues to do something Rugby as a whole has not been able to accomplish over the last 120+ years. They found a way to bridge the gap between American Football and its “sporting parent” Rugby. There has been much publicity in the last couple years about the positive impact SEREVI/ATAVUS have had on the safety and execution of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks’ Defense through “Rugby style” tackling. Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll constantly praises how this shift in practice has enhanced their defense and increased the safety of their players. Atavus is leading the charge in bringing back an “old school” technique to a modern game.
Our goal at Rugby Period is to build upon the foundation rugby created over the last 192 years (since 1823), while acknowledging our modern American sporting heritage
We believe many Americans have begun to take a step back from our modern sporting traditions in search for a non-traditional game that actively breeds character, instills positive values, and cultivates community. ATAVUS is a brand, a conduit, a program and a pathway for people to find their place in this burgeoning Rugby Period. And we are proud to join them in their mission.
