The Dallas Ruby Football Club (the “Reds”) are pleased to invite you and your players to a collegiate rugby skills camp on Sunday, Dec. 20. 2015. If you believe your players would be interested, please distribute this email to them this week so that they can sign up by clicking on the links below. The sign up deadline is Sunday, Dec. 6, 2015.
Although we recognize that school will be out on Dec. 20, this camp is for any of your players who will be in the DFW area visiting family or for other reasons during that period of time. Coaches are also welcome. We are subsidizing the cost of the camp to keep it within reach of the average college student—the $15 entry fee includes lunch and a t-shirt.
The focus of the camp will be on individual and unit passing, open play, and defensive skills. There will also be a video / classroom component. The Coaching Staff will be segregating players by experience levels based on the information provided when signing up for the camp, so that participants can take part in drills with players of like skill levels, and all participants can get the most out of the camp. A detailed agenda for the day will be distributed to each participant via email prior to the start of camp.
Here are the logistical details:
