    Beginning in 2014, Husky Rugby partnered with ATAVUS to help the Huskies grow the men’s and women’s programs and compete at the highest levels of collegiate rugby. Through the initial 5-year agreement, ATAVUS – a provider of the USA Rugby Academy  – has been delivering on-field coaching support in both 15s and 7s, supporting recruitment in the form of talent identification and referrals to UW coaches, and developing rugby specific strength and conditioning programs for players. To strengthen Husky recruitment and broaden awareness of the Husky Rugby Club, ATAVUS also supports UW’s camps for youth players from across the region on campus and has created an internship at ATAVUS’ Seattle offices for promising UW athletes to learn more about the game. The ATAVUS team at UW is led by coach Shawn Pittman, a veteran USA Eagle who played in the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand and professionally in Europe.
