High School All-Americans
We are very pleased to announce that after competing in the RCT's (Regional All-Star Tournament) and/or attending the Eagle Impact Rugby Academy (EIRA) two of our Clayton Youth Rugby players have been selected to attend the USA Rugby Boys High School All American (HSAA) Winter Camp in Casa Grande, Arizona in December.

These are the first two Clayton Rugby players to ever receive this honor. They are two of 130 high school players that were invited nationwide. Both of these players are straight A students and we could not ask for better representation for our club and city.
Based on their performance in camp, these young men could earn the opportunity to represent the United States against other countries and provincial academy sides in Europe, Ontario, and British Columbia in the spring and summer of next year.
This is a huge distinction for these boys and also for our club. To have not just one but two of our high school players selected will help our club get the attention of colleges nationwide. This is just the beginning of the opportunities that will be available to our players.
As you might have guessed this is going to be a very worthwhile but expensive undertaking. As a club we want these opportunities to be available to all of players not just the ones that can afford it. We are asking for your help to get these boys to Arizona and beyond. Please consider this an investment in our club and all of the players that will come through our program. All of your donations will go directly to airfare and camp costs.
Thank you very much for your support.
