BOULDER, Colo. – The application process for USA Rugby’s Games Staff (Team Leader / Coach) for the 2014 Youth Olympic Games is now open.
The United States will send one boys and one girls team to Nanjing, China, August 16-28 for the first YOG to include rugby sevens on the Games Program.
Coaches applying for the Team Leader / Coach position must pass the National Center for Safety Initiatives’ background screen and possess a valid passport that does not expire until at least six months after the conclusion of the Games, among other requirements.
“The Youth Olympic Games is an exciting opportunity for players and coaches alike,” USA Rugby Chief Executive Officer and President of Rugby Operations Nigel Melville said. “There are plenty of coaches across the United States capable of leading a team to the podium in Nanjing.”
