Northeast ODA Re-brands and Launches Women's Academy
Another exciting development will see the launch this summer of the Northeast Womenâs Academy, which is intended to replicate and mirror the model and success of the Men's program. In New England, the program will be overseen by John McGeachy, a former Eagle in both 7âs and 15âs and a current coach with the Northeast Men in charge, assisted by Kelly Seary of Beantown and Harvard fame. In the New York area it will be Gary Heavner and Kate Daley of Old Blue, and Rosalie McGowan and Koma Gandy-Fischbein of the New York Rugby Club.
âWe are looking forward to extending the program and giving top female athletes in the area the same opportunities as the men have had, and I believe we have assembled a solid leadership group to get the ball rollingâ, said McGeachy. âI also want to recognize the support given by the New England Union in particular in helping drive this opportunity in our area.â
