The 2019 American Rugby Pro Training Center (ARPTC) season is loaded with elite-level opportunities for athletes seeking a high performance environment to advance their game. ARPTC Residents will travel across the country and around the globe to compete against high-level rugby players and build their own rugby prowess. ARPTC travels internationally this summer to Italy and Ireland, competing in two international tournaments.
Rugby athletes seeking to improve their rugby skills, game knowledge, and overall performance are encouraged to participate in the ARPTC New Resident Trial Camp, March 29-31. Trial Camp is an opportunity for athletes to showcase their rugby abilities and earn a spot as an ARPTC Resident.
ARPTC Resident Athletes train in Little Rock, Arkansas, from June through mid-August on a quest to improve their rugby abilities and to perform at their highest levels. Any athlete seeking rugby success is encouraged to submit an application on the American Rugby Pro website. All application materials must be submitted no later than March 7. ARPTC will select the best 28 rugby athletes to train as Summer Residents.
Apply today and reserve your spot at the New Resident Trial Camp! Change your game in 2019!
As the largest of only five designated National Development Academies (NDAs), ARPTC aims to narrow the performance gap between amateur domestic athletes and professional international players, and we work to accelerate the development of rugby athletes towards full-time residency as a member of Team USA at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center. As a designated NDA, we follow the international standards set forth for athletes aspiring to participate in the Olympic Games and in international test rugby.
