Assistant Rugby Director
ICEF rugby has been on 12 international trips: China, Japan, New Zealand, England, France, South Africa Tahiti, Brazil and Hawaii. Touring rugby scholars stay with local families and attend school.
In 2010, we took 40 ICEF rugby/scholars to Washington, DC to stay with and play against students from the Hyde Leadership Academy. There was a private visit to the White House where we were hosted by Director of Domestic Affairs, Melodie Barnes. The Hyde rugby/students visited us this Spring in LA for one week and the return matches of the LA/DC Cup.

UCSB was so impressed that the university created a summer camp especially for ICEF students, including6 weeks of intensive academics, work-study, and rugby.
