ELITE Rugby USA’s summer camps at Stanford, Infinity Park, University of Oregon and the Olympic Training Center are less than a month away. ELITE at Stanford from July 9th to July 12th is nearly sold out with only 9 overnight spots remaining.
ELITE's prestigious coaching staff is made up of current and past USA players and coaches. By providing young players with the opportunity to work with these coaches, ELITE hopes to inspire young players to achieve their goals on and off the field.
Each day at ELITE is carefully constructed so that campers can learn and retain as much information as possible. ELITE designs a sequence of instruction, unique drills, skill games and controlled scrimmages to give young players the tools to become an ELITE player.
Matt Sherman designs all rugby instruction at ELITE. Coach Sherman is the USA Collegiate All Americans Head Coach, Stanford University Head Coach, former USA Backs Coach and a former USA 15s player. Coach Sherman stated, "At ELITE, the foundation of our coaching is the implementation of proper technique of core skills: Passing, Catching, Tackling, Contact Skills, and Position Specific Skills. We then progress those skills into more advanced techniques and work on implementing those skills into playing cohesively, playing together in smaller groups, forwards and backs units, and collectively as a team. All of this instruction culminates in our scrimmage on the final day."
ELITE values more than just rugby skills and emphasizes this belief at all of our camps. ELITE continually asks players to challenge themselves to be ambassadors for the sport of rugby by doing their best on and off the field. ELITE recognizes players at camp who achieve honor roll during the school year and have a positive impact in their community. Furthermore, they bring in leaders from the community and college counselors to speak to young players about higher education, goal setting, sacrifice and commitment to excellence.
