Lara Vivolo, Assistant Women’s Rugby Coach at West Point, stated that this year the sessions included heightened video taping of drills and instruction, which improved all skill levels.

In addition, the Camp added more films of international play to give a picture of the development of rugby for Women throughout the globe.

Vivolo is one of the experienced camp counselors who works alongside veteran coaches Bill Leclerc and Steve Lewis.

Campers arrived from California, Texas, Utah, and other nearby states. Some who are seniors will apply for entrance into the Academy next year.

The beautiful campus at West Point showcases the nation’s military history. In the above photograph, first session campers stand in front of the statue of General Douglas Macarthur.
