USA Rugby's Dream: To Inspire America to Fall in Love with Rugby
Founded in 1975, USA Rugby is an official member of the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) and the International Rugby Board (IRB).
The organization has approximately 90,000 members and is responsible for the development of the boys, girls, high school, collegiate and club rugby programs, and ultimately all of the national teams representing the U.S. in international competitions.
The current structure of USA Rugby comprises seven Territorial Unions (TU) and 34 Local Area Unions (LAU) that compete for regional and National Championships.
USA Rugby's national headquarters is located in Boulder, Colo., and is run by full-time staff under the direction of current CEO and President of Rugby Operations Nigel Melville.

We believe that rugby will be the best experience in American sports.
We believe in delighting and creating value for our members.
We believe rugby has something for everyone and that anyone can play.
We believe in lifelong camaraderie beyond the game.
We believe that our greatest assets are our players.
We believe in developing peak performance at all levels of the game.
We believe in owning our performance.
