USA RUGBY BEGINS WOMEN’S ALL-AMERICANS SELECTION PROCESS
BOULDER, Colo. -- USA Rugby has begun the process of selecting the 2011 Women’s Collegiate All-Americans (WCAAs).
The WCAA honor is awarded annually to a select group of women who have proven themselves to be outstanding collegiate rugby players and in 2011, both Division I and Division II athletes will be recognized.
In addition, selection to the WCAAs is a key step in the high performance pathway and many current and former Women’s Eagles have ascended to the senior national team by way of the WCAA program.
All-Americans are selected based on their performance during the collegiate season, playoffs and championships, as well as performance at the Collegiate National All-Star Championships.
Collegiate coaches may nominate players for All-American selection. Submitting game footage is helpful for selectors and is highly recommended.

The WCAAs will have a touring side that will attend a summer training camp and a weeklong tour, competing against a Canadian University All-Star team at the annual Saranac Lake/Lake Placid tournament in upstate New York.
