How to Train an Eagle

Ever dreamt of representing the US of A in the red, white and blue jersey of an Eagle? Now’s your chance to train with the best women ruggers of the US, and compete for your spot as an Eagle. USA Rugby has released the 2013 schedule of training and competition as the Women’s National Team (WNT) builds towards the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup.

There are three major events scheduled for the Women Eagles in 2013.  In May, the Top 60 Elite Performance Series will be held in Greely, CO.  The following month, the Eagles will tour France, and the Nations Cup tournament will round out the summer competition.

What are the steps necessary to begin your Eagle training?

First, apply for an invitation to attend a camp at your local Eagle Training Center (ETC). From the DC region, the nearest ETC is at Penn State, in State College, PA. Camps will be held there in February, March, and April. Find the application here. Fitness scores and coach references will be required.

Invitations to the Top 60 Elite will be awarded to outstanding players who attend the ETC camps. Even if you’re not competing for a place on the WNT roster, attending Eagle Training Camps are a great way to improve your skills with renowned coaches and talented teammates.

Don’t go it alone! The Furies’ favorite Eagle, Laura Miller, will be training at home and traveling to Penn State to attend the monthly camps, and is eager to have teammates by her side!
