UH Rugby Clinic

Posted by Eric Ingram on June 22, 2013 at 2:50 PM

Hey everyone,


     I know, two posts in one month, that’s crazy. The reason for that is I’m really trying to use this platform more frequently to keep those who follow my quad rugby career better informed. But, alas, we stray from the topic at hand.


    This past weekend I attended a quad rugby clinic at the University of Houston hosted by Adaptive Athletics at UH, an amazing group trying so start up a disabled sports program at the University (including a quad rugby team, check out their website here ). which is big, because we need more collegiate adaptive sports programs. If they had a program at ODU, I would’ve been all over that.



    The clinic went really well, as it was coached by two seasoned Team USA members, Jason Regier and Chuck Aoki. They brought their experience and intensity to the table and definitely kicked all of us into shape. This was the most intense rugby I had played in months. The camp was four days long and I stayed in the campus dorms (cue horrible flashback to my college experience) and it really covered every aspect of rugby. For the new guys, it was probably information overload (in a good way) and for the veterans it was absolutely a nice refresher course.


    Also, the Adaptive Athletics at UH team must have amazing PR people, because it seemed like every news outlet in Houston showed up to find out what this crazy wheelchair rugby thing was about. Which brings me to my next point, click the link below and you may see someone familiar in a news interview, just saying,

That’s all I’ve got for now, who knows, maybe I’ll post a third time this month!
