Rugby Trials


We've been helping potential sports stars of the future gain places at American Universities for many years now. Since 2001, we've secured scholarships for over 7,500 athletes; securing over $200 million in scholarship awards on their behalf in the process.

The first step in your journey to experience university in America is to attend one of our rugby trials. We'll assess your ability and give you a presentation of what you can expect to get from a rugby scholarship in the USA.

If this sounds up your street, apply for a trial now. Once we’ve received your application, we'll write to you to confirm your place and give you more information about the scholarship process in general.


All participants need to be dressed in proper rugby attire and bring all items that would be need for a training session or game.  No rugby boots or training gear will be provided.  We highly encourage participants to bring water and other snacks to keep them hydrated and energized throughout the session.  Changing and showering facilities will be provided.

REGISTRATION FEE: £20.00 (€20 in Ireland). This covers your insurance to participate in the trial event

SCHEDULE (Example):

  • Registration - 10 minutes
  • Presentation from FirstPoint Staff - 30 minutes
  • Playing Assessment & Game - 90 minutes
  • Closing Remarks & Feedback

This is a chance for you to learn about American college sport. We detail the level of competition, how sports scholarships work, academic and sports requirements and what the student-athlete experience looks like.

We encourage parents to attend the presentation, watch the assessment taking place & meet with members of the FirstPoint USA staff to ask questions and learn more about the opportunity and what it involves.
