The layer will learn evasive running, play making, and open field support skills, which are designed to help create more line breaks, better decision making ball in hand, and support running skills. Support skills help convert line breaks to trys.

This workshop is appropriate for players in ALL positions and at all levels (it will not be a high contact session so younger players are encouraged to join in). This workshop is open to all U20 and U23 eligible players (born after Jan 2, 1986), collegiate and high school level.

Since this is Mothers day, the workshop will start early and conclude by noon, so players may celebrate with their families.

All coaches are welcome and can apply for one USA Rugby continuing coach education credit for attending.

Players and coaches are encouraged to RSVP via email or through the Facebook invite. However, RSVP is not required for attendance. Please bring your own water and tape, if you need it.

Directions will be posted on both the Facebook invite and the MARFU U23 Women's All Star Blog
