Boys' High School All-Americans
The Boys' High School All-Americans, sponsored by Aircraft Charter Solutions, are the best Junior Varsity (U17) and Varsity (U19) male rugby players from across the country, and compete as both 15s and Sevens squads. They recently traveled abroad to England and won the Las Vegas Invitational tournament in February. This summer they will compete in a South American tour.
To become a HSAA, athletes need to be selected for their state all-star team. State All-Star teams then compete in one or more of the seven Regional Cup Tournaments (Previously known as RASTs) throughout the country. HSAA scouts attend the RASTs to make selections for the HSAA squad. To find out more information about your state all-start team, please contact your State Rugby Organization.
For more information regarding the team and selection process, please contact Head Coach Salty Thompson.
