Women’s Collegiate All-Americans Assemble for Can-Am Tournament


The Women’s Collegiate All-American team has assembled in Lake Placid, NY to prepare for their two matches against the CIS All-Canadian Team in the Can-Am Tournament.  The team has been training together since July 25 and will remain in New York until August 1.


USA Rugby CEO & President of Rugby Operations Nigel Melville sees the two game outing for the Women’s Collegiate All Americans as a great step forward for the development of the Women’s College Rugby.  “This is a great development opportunity for these players, getting to play on the All-American side is hopefully the beginning for many of these players to eventually step up and play for the Women’s Eagles one day”.


The WCAA will play their first match at Ken Wilson Field, Saranac Lake, NY on Thursday, July 28 at 6 P.M. EDT and the second match will be played at Bloomingdale Field, Bloomingdale, New York on Sunday, July 31 at 3:30 P.M. EDT.
