Rugby Combine — Saturday, February 25th @12pm

In conjunction with our commitments to fostering a healthy environment for our local community and helping our youth “move well”, the BaseCamp Athletic Club will be extending its participation in rugby into 2017. Our kickoff event, a winter combine, will be held on February 25th at 12pm at the BaseCamp31 facility (1250 Route 31N, Lebanon NJ). Unlike the NFL Draft combine, our event will be focused on fun while still serving as a benchmark for the athlete’s growth.  While our youth athletes are participating in the combine, we will be simultaneously be hosting an information session for parents and adults that want to participate in our weekly pick-up games of (touch) rugby. Some of the topics to be discussed will be the benefits of rugby and our goals for the 2017 season while also providing an open forum to ask any questions. We are VERY excited about rugby and, more specifically, our combine as the 2017 kickoff event and can’t wait to see you at BaseCamp31 on the 25th. This event is FREE and open to all so please bring friends; the more the merrier!
