Re:Mind Recover at the USA Rugby Development Camp

USA Rugby held a National Tracking Camp (NTC) at Infinity Park in Denver, CO on Sunday June 7.  The aim of this camp was to identify new athletes, as well as monitor athletes who are already a part of the National Training Squad of each age-grade national team.  
The NTC is a one-day event with "combine" testing enabling athletes from a variety of backgrounds to showcase their skills and abilities in front of USA Rugby Coaches.
