Rugby Assessments

FirstPoint USA has been helping potential sports stars of the future gain places at American Universities for many years now. Since 2001, we have secured scholarships for over 7,000 athletes; securing over $150 million in scholarship awards on their behalf in the process.

The first step in your journey to secure an American rugby scholarship is to attend one of our 'Rugby Assessment & Presentation' days.

We are currently holding assessment days for potential applicants to come along and show us their skills. If you are interested in attending a Rugby Assessment Day, you first need to apply below. Once we’ve received your application, we will send you written confirmation and further information about the scholarship process in general.
