USA Rugby announced Friday a new partnership with Play Rugby USA to develop thousands of new rugby players, teachers, and coaches in the Bay Area ahead of Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018, to be held at AT&T Park and San Jose’s Avaya Stadium.
The introduction of Technical Zones (TZs) to high school rugby matches has been a priority for us this spring. This has come with mixed reactions from teams and coaches, but has been a great benefit to those programs who utilize these zones for their matches. Here is a quick overview of the what and the why on TZs.
The third season of World Rugby’s Women’s Sevens Series is alive and well and headed to Atlanta, where the host city of the Games of the XXVI Olympiad readies for 12 of the best international women’s rugby sevens teams.
USA Rugby members past and present will be surveyed and interviewed over the next few weeks as part of a World Rugby study that will examine the factors that cause players to remain in the sport and those that result in players leaving the sport.
