Read USA Rugby’s original press release.

The USA Women’s National Team pool is assembling for the first time since the Women’s Rugby World Cup in August 2017, and the five-day, high-performance training camp (July 30-August 3) at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center will mark head coach Rob Cain’s first assignment since being hired in May.

Below are the 60 athletes who are heading to Southern California at the end of the month, and two slots are being held for top performers at the WPL All-Star Game in Denver. For consistency purposes, this list is updated to indicate which 15s clubs (versus 7s teams or programs) players represented in the 2017-18 season, the exceptions being those who focused on 7s this past year. Additionally, those players who graduated high school this year, their new collegiate program for the fall is listed in parentheses (Salote Tausinga is the lone current high schooler). There are also several players who graduated from college this spring and we’re eager to see where they land for the 2018-19 15s season.
