GRR: Eagle Impact Rugby Academy
The Eagle Impact Rugby Academy U16 team under Coach Brendan Keane is going to British Columbia for a two-game tour, and it’s an interesting and diverse group.
Eagle Impact Rugby Academy Director Salty Thompson is taking a 12-player team to British Columbia in July for the Victoria International 7s.
The team Thompson will take is very similar to the HS All American squad he coached at the Las Vegas Invitational, a team that lost to British Columbia 7s Academy in the final.
The Eagle Impact Rugby Academy is fielding a U16 team that will travel to British Columbia to play the BC U16s.
The team will initially assemble in Seattle, Wash. on July 12, and then bus to the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC, where they will stay and train before playing BC U16s twice.
The merger of the Eagle Impact Rugby Academy program and Serevi’s Rugby Academy under the name USA Rugby Academy is, in many ways, a logical step for both organizations as well as USA Rugby, but it doesn’t mean others are left out in the cold.
