The Eagle Impact Rugby Academy approach to player and coach development is based on the Six Pillars of High Performance model. Each component is critical to developing a professional rugby mindset.

EIRA’s vision is to close the gap in the global game of rugby. Our mission is to identify and develop the best young players in America. Clinics provide the necessary skill development for players. Continuity with this development is provided through winter camp and summer tours. This summer, 10 EIRA teams ranging from u15 to u19, toured internationally. EIRA believes ongoing skill development combined with international tours not only provides the individual player personal experience of the fast-paced skilled game of tier one nations, but also enhances the development of their home club with this new-found knowledge.

Together We Make A Difference!

EIRA’s purpose is to recognize and develop elite players, not to make a profit. Contributions help minimize player costs and enable us to offer scholarships to players with need. 

Nearly 1,300 players from 29 states and DC participated in EIRA events in 2018. Three hundred of these players were given the opportunity to tour the United States, Canada & Ireland playing rugby at an elite level. Challenging players with competition against Tier 1 nations builds character and skill while immersing them in a tour culture that focuses on integrity. 98.9% of EIRA players continue to play after high school with 95% playing in college.
