Beginning this fall, Herd Rugby started reaching out to high school programs. The program directly reached out to majority BIPOC rugby programs, as HBCUs create a university atmosphere that is unparalleled. Coaches also held a virtual Prospective Athletes Webinar updating interested high school rugby players about the program. Current athletes also shared their experiences at Howard University and with Herd Rugby.
This spring, coaches plan to attend high school events including the February NJ Combine and EGRL Showcase weekend in June. Coaches are also available for 1-on-1 Zoom meetings with athletes, families, and teams.
Howard is a school that attracts international students as well. Coaches and program personnel are available to discuss both international and domestic students. We would love to be a school that is sought after by international rugby players.
