NDCwomensteam 60plusndcteam

I was fortunate enough to be invited to come shoot their Camp this past week at Notre Dame College in Ohio!

They have 3 brand new Turf fields and Rugby was just named a Varsity sport at Notre Dame College so they are fortunate enough to be able to get all the perks as all the other varsity teams. On Monday afternoon they took 5 vans to an abandoned Country Club where they had to run hill repeats for 90 minute with core workouts in between. On Tuesday afternoon they had a 90 minute pool workout where most of the players afterwards said that was the toughest thing they’ve ever done!

Notre Dame College in South Euclid, OH is proud to announce that they have achieved their recruitment goals and have awarded 45 student athletes partial rugby scholarships for the fall 2013 term.

NDCscrumThe fall season looks extremely bright for the greatly expanded Women’s and Men’s programs. Recruits have arrived from 12 different states and 4 Countries. The vision of the school is: Notre Dame College is a World Class Center of Rugby Excellence. With a mission of Student First, Athlete Second!

The Women’s and men’s teams completed a week long camp that featured 7 hours of rugby in 3 grueling session a day. In addition to the physical sessions it also included presentations on Proper Nutrition for Athletes, Sports Psychology and Social Media Training.

Notre Dame College is a four-year private catholic institution in the tradition of the Sisters of Notre Dame located on 61 beautiful acres 30 minutes from downtown Cleveland in South Euclid OH. We are anxious to award Rugby Scholarships to deserving athletes for the men’s and women’s rugby programs.
