First15 Sport Performance to Participate in 2016 USA Rugby
National Development Summit

MINNEAPOLIS - First15 Sport Performance is among the list of participants at the largest professional assembly of rugby coaches, referees, and administrators in the U.S.  The 2016 USA Rugby National Development Summit (NDS), taking place in San Francisco, CA, features presentations, clinics, networking events, and an exhibit hall dedicated to sharing best practices in rugby development from domestic and international experts.  First15 will be present as an exhibitor and offering information about mental skills training and additional service offerings to over 500 attendees.

“We are thrilled to be a part of this critical event for the sport of rugby in the U.S., and are looking forward to sharing what we have to offer with the conference participants, “said Katie Sjeklocha, Director of Operations. “I can think of no better place to officially communicate our company’s presence than this event.”

The NDS is also known as a hub for high performance activities, where First15 will be tasked with delivering mental skills training to elite athletes and support staff, while attending meetings in the interest of developing strategic partnerships.  Katie Wurst, Director of Performance, played a major role in developing the NDS in past roles with USA Rugby and is looking forward to increasing awareness of First15’s potential for developing the game.      

“The NDS has made great strides in linking grassroots and high performance rugby development, which truly matches the mission of First15 Sport Performance.  We are looking forward to working with dedicated coaches, referees, and administrators to enhance their programs,” said Wurst.

First15 Sport Performance’s event booth will be located directly inside the entrance to the NDS exhibit hall.  Staff members will be available throughout the conference to share information and answer questions.  NDS participants can also enter to win services and prizes in the exhibit hall.  Interested individuals are encouraged to make contact via email at and social media at @first15sport at any time.
