Empire GU Updates Men's Select Side Schedule
Competitions held June 3 (Rochester, NY) and June 10 (Union, NJ)
Empire GU has announced an updated Men's High Performance Select Side schedule for the 2017 campaign. The formatted schedule will allow USA Rugby staff to attend All-Star game and use the matches as a scouting tool.
"Through ongoing discussions with USA Rugby, Empire GU was asked if it would consider changing the dates of upcoming All-Star matches to align with the USA-Ireland match," said Ken Pape, Empire GU President. "The shift will give EGU's Select-Side players visibility in front of USA Rugby staff on the pitch and interaction off it. In addition, all Select-Side players will receive a complimentary ticket to the USA-Ireland match at Red Bull Arena on June 10. This is a fantastic development for our HP program."
The EGU Men's High Performance Program consists of sides from Upstate, NYC/CT and New Jersey. Previously, the EGU Men's HP schedule called for matches on 5/21, 5/28 and 6/3. The amended schedule will see a single match on June 3, with New Jersey traveling to Upstate (Aardvark Park | Rochester, NY), and a round-robin on June 10 in Union, NJ, where New Jersey will face NYC/CT, followed by NYC/CT versus Upstate.
