Eagle Impact Rugby Academy assemblies have been ongoing throughout the fall around the country, with almost 100 HS teams sending players to six different locations for regular skill training.
EIRA runs regular academies in New York, North Carolina, Washington state, Southern California, Texas, and at Lindenwood University in Missouri.
The new New York chapter of the Eagle Impact Rugby Academy finished up its third session this past weekend.
Ten coaches took care of 40 players, working with them in enhancing rugby skills and decision-making. Guest coaches Mike Petri, Nick Discala, and Dave Katz of the NYAC men's club joined the result group of coaches, headed up by Matt Persanis.
The Eagle Impact Rugby Academies are underway around the country with a few more ready to get started.
The EIRA chapters are designed to give high school players who have aspirations in the game a stronger grounding in rugby skills and a better understanding of the game.
