New York, NY; Aug 28, 2015 – Another exciting weekend of Rugby 7’s kicks off this Saturday in Philadelphia, PA. The Northeast Academy is bringing two men’s teams to participate in Elite City 7’s to close out its four-tournament month of August. Northeast is coming off a very exciting weekend in Limerick where they went 2-1 in a difficult pool, but unfortunately fell short to a very strong Connacht squad in the quarterfinals before recovering to win 7th place overall. This weekend has still more in store for rugby maniacs across the country though, as the Academy will be showcasing its stalwart Strength and Conditioning Coach, Dominic Wareing in his first official head coaching start. Stephen Lewis, Director of Coaching at the Northeast Academy and Director of Rugby at Old Blue Rugby Football Club (OBNY) had this to say on Wareing’s moment, “Dom is a highly qualified teacher and coach and will have zero problem stepping up to this level. In my mind he will be one of the top coaches in the country in short order. He has the educational background, interpersonal skills and rugby nous to make all the right decisions.”
