Our head coaches have completed level 200 certification from USA Rugby (this is a requirement for contact rugby).
Alan comes from the home of rugby, England. He grew up with the game and played through to his mid twenties, when work finally took over everything and he became an ardent spectator. Alan joined us just before we became the Wrentham Acorns to give back to the greatest sport in the world and to start his son on his rugby journey.
When not wheezing around after the far too fast for him high schoolers, Alan is VP of Product at an enterprise video company.
Ryan fell in love with Rugby at the late age of 30. He spent two astute seasons on the B and C side squads at Denver Barbarians, mostly learning by watching and "practicing" with USA National Sevens Team players. He's the former volunteer Director of Communications at Northeast Academy - USA Rugby's official Olympic development academy. He was also a news correspondent contributing to This is American Rugby Blog.
Pete is one of our two members from the southern-hemisphere, having grown up in the country that fields the All Blacks, arguably with the world's best Rugby team (he disputes the word "arguably"). Pete spent 7 years living in China where he organized and coached youth Rugby with other ex-pats from rugby-playing nations. Pete moved to the US and joined us in 2016. Pete helps coach our flag team.
Rubin represents the Aussie contingent of the team. He joined us back in 2013 when the club was in its infancy. He is probably the staff member with the least amount of Rugby playing experience, having grown up in the state of Victoria, where Aussie Rules Football reigns supreme. He makes up for his lack of passing skills with a wicked torpedo kick! Rubin helps us with marketing and coaching our flag team.
