Ben Cima was a four-time High School All-American at Gonzaga College High School in Washington, DC, where he won a National Championship in 2014.

Having represented the U20 Men's Junior All-Americans in both 2014 and 2016 at the Junior World Rugby Trophy, Cima made a name for himself by helping his squad cement their 2016 World Rugby U20 Trophy title by successfully kicking a 50+ meter penalty against rival-Canada. The incredible kick was only complemented by another 45-meter penalty to defeat Uruguay during the U20 Trophy Tournament in Zimbabwe.

In the Fall of 2016, the rising star joined the USA Rugby Selects for the Americas Pacific Challenge where he proved himself worthy of a selection to the Men's Eagles roster for the 2017 Americas Rugby Championship (ARC). There, Cima earned his first cap against Uruguay, slotting in 11 total points in the match and ultimately helping his team earn their first ever ARC title victory.

In 2018, he joined the Eagles once more for the 2018 Americas Rugby Championship where he helped the United States go 5-0 to clinch their second consecutive title.
