The USA Women’s 7s and 15s team are looking for athletes that want to participate in the journey to the World Cup in Paris in 2014 and the Olympics in Rio in 2016. USA Rugby is looking for both players who are current rugby players as well as cross-over athletes who would be new to the sport of rugby.
Players should complete the application and it will then be reviewed by the coaches. Selected players will be invited to their local Olympic Eagle Training Center weekend on the February 23rd weekend. Invitations start to be sent by the end of January. There is not closing date for the application, but athletes will increase their chance of an invite if they apply as early as possible.
Based on selectors review, players may be contacted for coaches recommendations based on coaches review of the submission.
