VYPE thanks All Star Coach Ken Mance for the following information on his team and their schedule...
The 2012, High School Rugby All Star Team has 27 boys from the Greater Louisville area that will participate against the Southern Indiana All Stars on June 2nd and in the Midwest High School Rugby All Star Championships on June 16th in Elkhart, IN. The All Star Team represents the best of the best High School rugby players in the state of Kentucky, who attended try-outs and were selected to attend the Championships.
The All Star team will play against other State All Star teams throughout the Midwest. The level of play is very high and will include High School All Americans and High School National Team players.
During the Midwest Championships, College Coaches and Scouts from around the Country will be in attendance looking for future recruits. Players will also have a chance to play in front of the High School National Coaches in order to get an invite to a National Camp. This could result in a National Team selection to represent the United States.
