US coach

For student-athletes from American universities taking part for the first time

Applications for Summer 2020 are still open for student-athletes from some partner universities.  Consult the first paragraph of the application form for details.  Please email Seth Napier with any questions about the program or to be put in touch with student-athletes who have taken part in the past.
