Hear from some of the athletes who have been enrolled at the Institute of Rugby and how their time training has helped prepare them for their college rugby environments!
Nikita Wollerman • University of Colorado
“The aspect in my life that really prepared me to enter college was the Institute of Rugby. The trainers and coaches taught me to focus on my fundamentals and to train hard which transferred into my school work. They also taught me to take care of myself mentally and physically to keep myself healthy. IOR was an amazing basis to have going into college. I hope to go back to IOR to visit and train this summer, and also to thank them for helping me get through my first year of college academics and rugby.”
Patrick French • UCLA
“Part of what made my transition into collegiate rugby so great was that I went into school with the necessary skill sets. Not only did IOR help me develop my skills, they also introduced me to a high performance environment, similar to what a college program is like. I’m so thankful that the IOR gave me the proper tools and experience to be successful in a high level environment and I’m excited to keep on playing here at UCLA!”
