Rugby Scholarship in the USA
Why in the world would you play and want a rugby scholarship in the US, you say? Isn’t ‘American Football’ their version of Rugby? Well, rugby is one of the fastest growing club sports across college sports campuses, with an increase in 14% in just two years.
Playing rugby in the American college system will make combining the passion you have for your sport as well as working towards a bachelor’s degree in your chosen field of study extremely convenient (for the lack of a better term). You never need to worry about whether you’ll have time to train or time to study. Your schedule is specifically set in a way that you can manage to excel in both. Does the idea of joining on of the 900 college rugby teams (both male and female) appeal to you? Then don’t hesitate to contact one of our sports consultants, all of whom are ex-student athletes themselves.
