Elite Camp Stanford a Success

ELITE Rugby Camp USA held at Stanford University from July 13-16 was a massive success. Over 55 youth rugby players, aged 10 to 18, attended the four-day clinic led by USA 7s captain Matt Hawkins and USA XVs backline coach Matt Sherman.

“We received an overwhelming response from the players and their parents,” ELITE Director Ethan Willis told RUGBYMag.com, “It was exciting to watch the players progress throughout the duration of camp, culminating in the highly competitive scrimmages”.

The ELITE campers stayed on-site at the wonderful Stanford campus, enjoying three quality meals with their new team-mates. On the field ELITE Coaches implemented important rugby fundamentals, working through all aspects of the game. Campers were also exposed to the latest drills used by both the Eagles 7s and XVs programs. The coaching staff included Hawkins, Sherman and Willis together with USA 7s and USA XVs Zack Test, USA 7s Alex Ross, retired USA 7s and now Eagles RWC Media Manager Dallen ’Paki’ Stanford as well as All American Chris Clever.

“At ELITE we have worked hard to put together an excellent coaching staff, with players getting plenty of one-on-one attention throughout the week” Hawkins explained.

The format included two-a-day field trainings at Steuber field, with time for various forms of competitive touch rugby, which was always a highlight with the coaches stepping in. Throughout the week, sprint-training coaches instructed players on correct running techniques, and a mental sports coach who has worked with several famous Olympians taught campers about mental toughness.

Another treat for the aspiring ELITE players was having All American captain Blaine Scully address the group, highlighting the importance of short and long term goals in achieving success. Campers also got to interact with all the ELITE coaches, gaining insight on how each coach reached their goals.

It was certainly a busy week for everyone, with ELITE also hosting a large group for the Coaches Clinic. The ELITE Coaches Clinic is a one day course that allows visiting coaches to work directly with ELITE Coaches, attend a question and answer session and leave with the ELITE Coaching Manual that outlines drills, techniques and philosophies coaches can implement with their own team. Additionally, special guest All American Head Coach Alex Magleby was on hand to address the attendees, fielding a variety of questions.

”Kids can become better rugby players at one of ELITE’s camps than playing years with their current coaches. I'm grateful that our coaches are ELITE Trained and are now able to provide so many more opportunities to our boys!” expressed Oakland Warthogs President Ryan Burke.

The ELITE camp ended on Saturday with parents watching their sons take part in several scrimmage matches. This was followed by the All Americans taking on the New Zealand Universities in a thrilling encounter at Steuber field.

The next ELITE camp will be in San Diego from July 25-28, taking place at the Olympic Training Center (OTC), the same venue that Olympians and the USA Men’s 7s team train at. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity - visit www.eliterugbycampusa.com/ and register before Friday July 22. There will also be a one-day Coaches Clinic on July 27.
