Breakers Rugby Camp 2024

We're excited to announce the Breakers Rugby Camp of 2024! It will be held on August 3rd and will be a great way to kick off our Fall season. Everyone's welcome to register and no rugby experience is necessary. The goal is to introduce the wonderful world of rugby to new players while helping existing players knock some rust off.

WHO WILL BE THERE

Anyone interested in playing rugby is welcome to register for our camp. The primary goal is to give new players a way to learn rugby and start playing with a local team. Existing players will be present to get some training in, but also available to answer any questions and show new players how things are done.

WHAT'S THE PLAN

Players will go through a series of training sessions prepared by one of the most respected coaches in the EPRU and Mid-Atlantic conference. We'll cap it off at a local pub down the road where we'll eat some food, socialize and exaggerate just how well we played.

​​

Rugby 101

We'll start camp by going over the core components of rugby. Passing, tackling, kicking and simple plays will make sure that new players know the basics.

Offensive & Defensive Game Play

Players will build on the basics of rugby by using them in offensive and defensive game play. Players will be shown how to move the ball forward on offense as well as the best way to defend against it.

Scrimmaging & Open Play

Now that players have a good understanding of how rugby is played it's time to actually play! Well, maybe not an actual match, but we'll start using everything we've learned so far in open play.

Complimentary Food & Beverages

After a long training camp all registered players are welcome to join us at the Anthracite Cafe for some grub. Not only is it crucial that we replenish our energy after a long day on the pitch, but the social side of rugby is where we get to know each other and make life-long friends.
