The 2010 Game Plan Rugby Academy, The Game Is On, will offer workshops, field training and sports incentives to both prospective coaches and youth players Dec. 9-11 at BYU-Hawaii in Laie.

Deadline is Nov. 25 to apply for the three-day program, which will be led by USA Eagles head coach Eddie O’Sullivan, camp director, with help from New Zealand Maori captain Liam Messam.

The academy has two components:

1) Rugby youth exchange for boys and girls ages 13-18 and

2) NZRU RugbySmart Professional Development for coaches from college, high school and club teams.

Fee is $25 for two days and one night of instruction and workshops, food, activities, camp, shirt and bag. Officials say the program is valued at $3,000. For hotel accommodation details, call Marilyn at 293-0600.

The academy also will select seven teen applicants for an all all-travel-expense paid rugby exchange academy in New Zealand.

Academy sponsor is Education-1st, a nonprofit Native Hawaiian organization promoting college degrees for young athletes. Executive director is Asai Gilman, and program director is Seamus Fitzgerald (597-4596).
