"This was for the Baltimore City Rec and Parks Youth Rugby Program, the first ever in the city. We had 46 register and typically 25 kids, ages 6 thru 13 attend 2 sessions a week for 8 weeks. Because of this success, we were invited to introduce tag rugby at the Baltimore City R&P Summer Camp where tag games were played with 25 kids for 2 hours and four mornings."

We are doing some friendly summer touch rugby on Friday nights, and the grant was greatly appreciated from all of us at Sahuarita Spartans Rugby Club. From the Coaches and all the players, we want to thank the Foundation for this generous donation. We are looking forward to our upcoming season."

"The South Shore Sharks, were desperately in need of new size 4's without any hope of proper funding without this generosity! With all of the uncertainties coming post pandemic we had slashed registration costs all while incurring new previously unforeseen costs leaving us without the ability to buy any new equipment . The US Rugby Foundation balls that were gifted are of a far superior quality to what we would have normally and are the perfect ball for our U-8's, U10's, U-14's and girls U-16's."
