The Philadelphia Women's Rugby Annual Collegiate Clinic will take place Saturday, February 16, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. The clinic will be held outdoors at Geasey Field at Temple University. In the case of inclement weather, the clinic will be moved indoors to Pearson & McGonigle Halls Rec Courts located on the second floor of the building next to the outdoor turf. Please dress warm and pack both cleats and sneakers in the event we move indoors.
Geasey Field Address:

Philadelphia, PA 19121
This three hour clinic will introduce collegiate athletes to some of the Philly Women players, refresh and teach body position in contact, and provide new insight to the game of rugby through passing drills and many different modifications of rugby. Because we are on turf this year, we will also have to opportunity to work on tackle technique and specific positional work where more contact is involved. Players are encouraged to dress warm, wear cleats and to bring a mouth guard. Please also bring sneakers (for possible gym time), a water bottle, and a snack if desired.
Admission to the clinic is FREE but we kindly ask that all athletes bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to Philabundance. We will collect items at registration.
Players of all experience levels are welcome from all local women's collegiate teams. In order to register for the event, we will need your individual USA Rugby CIPP number, and for you to provide the name of your college team to ensure liability under USA Rugby.
Check-in will occur from 8:30 a.m.- 8:50 a.m. at Geasey Field. There will also be rugby gear for sale, so be sure to allow time to shop!
In the event that the clinic is moved indoors, you will need a photo ID for security check in with the front desk of Pearson & McGonigle Hall.
