    Updates & News

    Congratulations Jack

    Recent graduate Jack Stimson was named to USA Rugby's Academic Honor Roll for 2015-16 season.

    Congratulations Jack!!  Earlier this year Jack's profile was highlighted on our facebook page.

    Jack majored in psychology hoping to find a career in sports psychology. He started playing rugby 7 years ago in his hometown of Chicago, IL. As for the reason for playing, Jack had this to say “My high school Spanish teacher mentioned she played it and suggested that we try it. I thought to myself that it wouldn’t hurt to try it. Then my advisor got me in contact with the team captain of our high school team and the rest is history.” Here are a few more questions to better get to know Jack:

    Favorite food: Anything BBQ related
    Favorite International Rugby Player: Kevin Swiryn
    Go to Karaoke Song: TNT by AC/DC
    Whole milk, 1% or 2% Milk?: Chocolate 2%
    Sports Idol: Zlatan Ibrahimovic
    If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring?: If Coach Swiryn isn’t an option then I would bring some sunscreen, a beach umbrella, and a nice big yacht.

    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.
