USA Rugby South Panther Academy is a high-performance/elite rugby program that develops athletes following the USA Rugby National Development Program.
Education – Sport Culture & connections with Collegiate Rugby
Development – Rugby skills and experience
Success – Compete at a high level & Success in Life
Panther Rugby Academy (PRA) is a 501c non-profit anchored in two basic tenants: Rugby Player Identification and Development and Culture of Excellence. Our program includes a robust calendar of events to facilitate this development and offers participation in several high level national and international events to apply these skills. We believe through this combination of development and competition our players and coaches can realize their full potential as athletes and ambassadors of the game of Rugby.
How is PRA different from USA Rugby South?
Panther Rugby Academy emerged from USA Rugby South, after identifying the need for a formal, player-focused development and educational organization. PRA partners with other elite programs and serves as a training ground for athletes who may go on to play for those programs. Membership in PRA is separate from participation with USA Rugby South and offers exclusive training, development and education for our members.
