A Welcome Message from USAIRA Director Paul Keeler:


The USA International Rugby Academy High School Player’s Course, founded 2013, is the cornerstone of the development program. USAIRA’s goal is to attract, recruit & develop America’s best young rugby talent by providing an effective development continuum, high quality competition and first class qualified coaches.
We provide our young players with an environment in which they can grow, express themselves both personally and professionally and realize their dream of playing collegiate and International Rugby. At USAIRA, we value attitude, commitment, integrity, and honesty as highly as we do rugby ability. We have assembled an experienced team of coaches, technical experts and support staff who all specialize in player development. In the program, particular focus is paid to core skills and game awareness but also includes physiology, sports psychology, nutrition and personal development.
