Rugby Performance Trials


We've been helping potential sports stars of the future gain places at American Universities for many years now. Since 2001, we've secured scholarships for over 7,500 athletes; securing over $200 million in scholarship awards on their behalf in the process.

The first step in your journey to experience university in America is to attend one of our football trials. We'll assess your ability and give you a presentation of what you can expect to get from a football scholarship in the USA.

If this sounds up your street, apply for a trial now. Once we’ve received your application, we'll write to you to confirm your place and give you more information about the scholarship process in general.



All participants need to be dressed in proper sports attire and bring all items that would be need for a training session or rugby game.  No rugby boots or training gear will be provided.  We highly encourage participants to bring water and other snacks to keep them hydrated and energised throughout the session.  Changing and showering facilities will be provided.

REGISTRATION FEE: £20.00 (€20 in Ireland). This covers your insurance to participate in the rugby trial

We are currently confirming dates and will add more shortly.

Do i need to attend a trial?

Our trials help us understand more about your athletic talents. We assess thousands of athletes every year, all with very different ability levels. But we’re always looking for the very best athletes, so if you feel that you’re at elite level in your sport, then there’s no need to attend a trial.

Elite level athletes may be considered if playing:

  • National level age Grade
  • Regional level age Grade
  • Academy level background
  • Adult 1st team experience
  • Regular competition winners
  • Recognised by school/club – such as Player of the Year, Top Points Scorer

If this sounds like you, let’s talk about we can help you realise your potential in the US.
