SPRING REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
At BC-AC, we believe that “moving well” is at the essence of what it means to be an athlete.
- Athletes that learn the focus and control required to move well have a significant advantage regardless of their chosen sport
- Those who can build coordination on this newly developed control can use efficiency of movement to excel
- Athletes that challenge themselves to learn new patterns and try a variety of sports have the best chance to succeed
In support of this notion, the BaseCamp Athletic Club chose rugby, the fastest growing team sport in America, as a way to support the “MOVE-well” concepts.
We began offering youth rugby programming designed to teach the skills of efficient movement in a fun way in the summer 2015 and have continually expanded the offering since.

The BC-AC Rugby Program will initially be under the direction of Michael Eisenhart who is both a charter member of the BC-AC and played as the University of Connecticut’s “outside center” (similar to a running back in American football) while he was there pursuing his degree in Physical Therapy. As a member of one of UCONN’s most decorated teams, Michael was afforded the unique opportunity to compete in the Rugby National Tournament advancing to the Sweet 16 before losing a heartbreaking loss to eventual finalist Penn State University in the closing seconds of the game.
