ELITE Rugby USA successfully completed another summer of camps while leaving a lasting impact on the boys who attended, “Our son had such an amazing experience. The level of professionalism and emphasis on coaching and education was so refreshing. There is no doubt that ELITE had an extremely positive influence on our son”, stated a past campers parent.
ELITE’s staff of current and past Eagles including Colin Hawley, Chris Biller and Matt Sherman delivered modern rugby instruction on the field and messages of how to best represent rugby off the field. A typical day of instruction included three action packed training sessions, an educational speech from Karen Fong about preparing for college, concluded by a motivational speech from Chris Biller about accountability.

Over 275 campers attended ELITE in numerous locations this summer and ELITE plans to continue to grow. ELITE Director Ethan Willis told us, “We recently received our official non-profit status. This status allows us to receive charitable tax-deductible donations from individuals and private companies. Ultimately, we hope to be able to provide more scholarships to our camps, that will allow more players to get exposure to top flight coaching and facilities”.
"I have really enjoyed working with these kids," added Hawley. "The interesting thing about coaching is that you're working with kids of all skill levels. So it's good for me as a player to work with these kids and help them develop their skills, whatever their level is. It certainly helps with your self-critique, as well."
The future is certainly bright for ELITE with camps on the horizon next summer in new locations and the addition of a women’s camp as well.
