South Elite Rugby Academy Sets Fall/Winter Schedule

The South Elite Rugby Academy has set their official launch date for the Fall of 2016. September 24th will see the Academy kick off in upstate South Carolina. Open to all rugby players regardless of their home club/state, this overnight academy meets once a month to focus on developing individual skills.

SERA Director of Rugby Nick Whitrow believes that “the camp environment allows for the special bonds and relationships to be created among athletes from other programs”.

Whitrow is joined by several highly qualified resident coaches including Hayden Kane (formerly at RSC academy and RSC selects), Rex Whitrow (former Clemson men’s scrum coach), Chris Caso (former strength and conditioning coach at Life University) Martin Sarkees Jr. (Formerly of Clemson men’s and women’s teams).

There will also be several guest coaches involved at the SERA academy. Several top collegiate coaches have verbally committed and will be announced in the next few weeks.
