Fieldhouse at Ralph Wilson Stadium
Orchard Park, NY

Now in its seventh year, the NYS Rugby Player Development Camp continues to be the perfect way for NYS Rugby U-19 high school boys and girls to jumpstart their spring seasons. Join us on March 5-6 in Orchard Park, NY, at the Fieldhouse at Ralph Wilson Stadium. This is sure to be a weekend you don't want to miss!

Make sure to complete your registration TODAY! Registrations (including payment) are due by February 18. Any registrations received after February 18 will not be accepted.

Due to the overwhelming response to this event, space will be limited to the first 150 players. Teams will be allowed to register a maximum of thirty (30) players. Walk-ins WILL NOT be accepted.

Lead Instructor
Eddie O'Sullivan, head coach of the U.S. National Team, will serve as the lead instructor at this year's camp. O'Sullivan was Ireland's most succesful coach of the modern era, leading the Irish National Team to three Triple Crowns and rising to as high as third in the World Rankings. He joined the U.S. National Team following the 2008-09 season.

Coaching Development
Coaches are also welcome to take part in the session, working alongside Eddie O'Sullivan and learning techniques and strategies used with our National Team programs. This camp is offered as part of NYS Rugby's Game Development Series - each participating coach can receive 5 CEU credits toward their ongoing USA Rugby certification requirements (the maximum available), and can extend their certification by attending two of the Game Development Series events.
