Introducing Taking Flight, American Rugby Camp Scholarship Contest

I am excited to announce this morning the launch of Taking Flight, a US rugby camp scholarship contest that myself, Rob Schnabel of Bakline, and the great folks at H2H Media (John and Ken) have been working hard on for the past few months. I have no doubt that part of the success of rugby in the states lies in youth rugby. I hope that this contest will help create more exposure for all the youngsters, their teams, and their schools that play, but also all the great organizations which promote youth rugby. 

Its a important element of the sport and one I'm passionate about. Check out the press release below and please spread the word!

Presented by 


H2H Video Competition To Find America’s Future Rugby Stars

NEW YORK, New York - June 7th 2012 - Bakline, A Rugby Life and H2H Media proudly announced the launch of Taking Flight,  a rugby scholarship contest to give the next generation of America’s men and women Eagles an opportunity unlike any before to attend elite training camps in the USA.  

Two winners (one male, one female) will get the chance to attend one of the top US Rugby Camps hosted by Serevi Rugby.

The two athletes will attend the Serevi Rugbytown Training Camp, a two-day camp taking place at Infinity Park in Glendale, CA on August 9th and 10th.  On August 11th, they get to show what they learned as they take part in the climax of the weekend’s festivities with a 7s tournament.   The winners will have the cost of their flights, accommodation in Glendale, and camp covered.
