Women’s 15s USA Rugby Academy Resident Camp
The Eagle Track was developed in conjunction with USA Rugby to offer more opportunities for current and potential age-grade pool players to receive high-level training and coaching throughout the year. Players are hand selected based on their performance(s) during previous Atavus programs as athletes our coaches see projecting for future rugby success.
During the Eagle Track, you will learn what it takes to prepare for National Team representation. This high-performance environment will cover all aspects of player preparation and give you insight on what is expected to train and compete at the top level with current All-Americans, USA Eagles, and Atavus Athletes.
From the moment you are picked up from the airport, we take care of everything with our all inclusive USA Rugby Academy Resident Camp. Accommodation, meals, multiple practice sessions per day, recovery sessions, performance presentations, and access to the best coaches from around the country are just a few of the highlights from camp.
360º Athlete Experience:
When we started our Resident Camp programming over 5 years ago, it was designed to mirror that of a national team assembly. Over the years, we have continued to develop and improve our programming and coaching to deliver our own unique 360º Athlete Experience which is like no other.
Our programming is designed to develop the modern rugby athlete and maximize player potential, whatever their goals may be. We aim to establish a strong technical foundation for game understanding, accelerated skill acquisition, and encourage athletes to apply their technique under increased pressure and act instinctively in both attack and defense.
