The Wisconsin U19 Selectside

The U19 Wisconsin Selectide, which is sponsored by the Wisconsin Rugby Football Union has announced dates for its spring camps. The information, from Scott Prunkle, the newly appointed coach, is as follows:

The initial Open Camp dates are as follows: Sunday, May 4th, 2008 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.Saturday, May 17th, 2008 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30

Interested parties should contact Scott at u19coach@gmail.com.

Open Camp Plan:The open camps will consist of offensive and defensive sections.

Defensive modules will be based upon an organized defensive model and focus on using guards, tackler, and lane defense, with some work on set-piece defense.

Offensive modules will be based on a forward ball retention offense and center-read attacking patterns for the backline.

The Goals of the Open Camps are both player development and identifying those players that are strong candidates for the U-19 Select Side. Please make sure that all interested players know that these camps are not exclusive - that is, we're looking to involve as many players as possible and build a strong player base for the U-19 Program.

Interested players contact Scott at u19coach@gmail.com with their email addresses, cell phone or home phone numbers and the date of the Open Camp they wish to attend so I can distribute the U-19 skills and playbooks to them and plan the sessions accordingly. I'm very excited about this opportunity, and hope to make the U-19 Program one that the players continue to have a lot of fun with and look forward to participating in!
