Sahlen Sports Park is proud to be the official home of the Rakavii Rugby Academy, a Fijian-American Company with a mission to grow the sport of rugby in the United States. Led by Coach Tui Osborne, who serves as the Director of Skills & Performance for Rakavii Rugby in addition to being the head coach of the St. Bonaventure University Men's Rugby team, the Rakavii Rugby Academy will be hosting rugby development clinics throughout the year focusing on three different stages of development: middle school, high school, and adult. All clinics will be focused on increasing individual skills in preparation for competition season with some match-related drills and touch games mixed in. The Rakavii Rugby Academy provides a great opportunity for new players to learn the game, experienced players to fine tune their skills, and local Rutgers to have ability to socialize and interact with the WNY Rugby Community.
