How to Represent the US at Rugby

USA Rugby has restructured its women’s high performance program. Creating a clearer pathway, the Women’s Eagles, Collegiate All-Americans, and Junior All-Americans efforts have been combined into one program and now include the pathway for both 7s and 15s players.

Talent Identification

All talent identification opportunities will be for the top teams in the pathway, from the Junior All-American to the College All-Americans to the Eagles. Coaches will identify players who should be in the pathway and then they will get to play at the highest level they are capable. The goal of all players should be to be invited to the National All-Star Competition, which is the critical selection vehicle for all the National teams.

There are multiple opportunities to be seen:

National All-Star Competition

The NASC will be the primary selection vehicle for the National Teams. Senior, college and U20 teams will be formed and will compete at their level during the week. Players will play at the highest level they are capable so they are able to accelerate their pathway to the Eagles.

The National All-Star Competition (NASC) will be held three times a year. The tri-annual events will be held for senior, college, and U20 levels of players. The competitions are weeklong events, seeing the invited players assigned to teams for competitions through an elite-level environment.

Dates for 2015 NASC

  • June 1-6, 2015 – James Madison University
  • August 11-16 – TBA
