The sport of rugby has a long standing tradition of encouraging physical fitness, camaraderie, competitive spirit, and most importantly, fun! You can find people who play and enjoy the game in every part of the world!
The growth of the game in the United States is at all-time high thanks largely to its induction into the Olympic games. Athletes of all shapes and sizes, from a diverse array of competitive backgrounds, are ready to test their abilities in a new sport. Also, the epidemic of obesity among young people has parents, teachers, and administrators eagerly anticipating new and creative options for kids to pick up a ball and run with it. In order to meet this important demand, we need knowledgeable and enthusiastic coaches to help make a difference in the lives of young athletes.
