More Important Camp Details
Nike Rugby Camps offer players the individualized coaching needed to improve their skill-set and gain a deeper understanding of the game. Our curriculum is the perfect blend of expert coaching, constructive drills, and fun evening activities. Coach Mike Petri will creatively teach players how to capitalize on their individual strengths and become a more dynamic player.
The overnight camp includes key fundamental drills, team strategies, match play, meals, housing and evening activities. The day camp (9:00am - 5:00pm) includes all rugby instruction and lunch. Day campers will be dropped off and picked up at the end of each day at the St. John's Campus on Long Island (Queens).

Check-in takes place on campus between 10:00 and 11:00am on the first day of camp. Check-out takes place at 11:00am on the last day of camp following a scrimmage and closing ceremony.
