XV Series works to bring each rugby player, coach, referee into the next level of rugby in the US.
XV SERIES™ is a USA based non-profit program whose goal is to develop and support amateur American rugby athletes, referees and support staff whilst providing a development pathway.
XV SERIES fosters and promotes links with USA rugby organizations and regional clubs, who have the collective goal of developing USA eligible players.
Our goal is to build a series of regional competitive matches under the XV SERIES program, which will help develop amateur players, coaches, referees, medical and management staff to succeed at the next level.
XV SERIES seeks to provide an initial opportunity to identify players with the greatest potential, to enter the select pathway towards regional representation, the professional game and national representation with the USA Eagles.
All the above can be achieved with a visible multi-pathway model whilst keeping a wide player base. It creates challenges for high achieving players, allowing progression opportunities for later developing players and creating opportunities to bridge increasingly high numbers of player drop out. This supports player retention into senior rugby.
XV SERIES is a pathway program that works with regional US rugby programs and Unions, providing match playing opportunities, without the limiting performance factors of playing for league position.
XV SERIES is an integrated approach to amateur player development and a pathway for youth programs, collegiate, clubs, regions and country. This will provide opportunities for a recognizable player, referee and coach development pathway, whilst still managing to retain both club and regional and professional identity.
“With playing other XV Series select teams, our coaches and players will be put in a position to participate in high quality rugby and prepare them for whatever their rugby aspirations are. We are looking forward to the coming season and can’t wait to compete against some of the best teams in the country!”
“I’m thrilled that Seattle Rugby Club is part of the XV Series. We’re looking forward to rich opportunities for our women - players, coaches, staff, and referees - to gain high level experience in preparing for and performing in XV Series matches.”
“The California Grizzlies are excited to be a part of a national program that is designed to promote American players and coaches. We aim to provide a pathway opportunity for US eligible players and local coaches to showcase their abilities.”
