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. This mindset will promote a healthy rugby and life balance while developing life skills that transcend rugby.

Train Smart and Stay Safe!

COVID-19 has forced us all to adjust. EIRA is slowly resuming clinics and camps when given the green light by state authority and our insurance. To better your personal athletic potential, EIRA is sharing a number of workout ideas:


EIRA’s vision is to close the gap in the global game of rugby. Our mission is to identify and develop the next generation of players in America. Clinics provide the necessary skill development for players. Continuity with this development is provided through winter camp and summer tours. 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!

Developing Coaches & Players

in support of our vision to close the gap. 

Congratulations to EIRA Coaches Jeff Bonnett (Head Coach), Cam Frater (Forwards), and Andrew Vanos (Backs) for coaching Back Bay Sharks to victory in the Boys National High School Championships

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 2,500 players from 40 states and DC participated in EIRA events in 2019. Over four hundred of these players were given the opportunity to tour the United States, Argentina, 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.


Please consider making a donation or becoming a sponsor and support our vision of closing the gap in the global game of rugby.
