In an effort to further progress the sport of rugby, SRC has created it’s first ever athletic combine. The event itself was actually an event used to create competition with Saratoga’s best athletes, from many different sports. The event quickly became a great platform for other all upstate athletes to compete in a series of stations designed to test athletes, strength, endurance, and agility.
