US Rugby Foundation

Coaches & Referees

In 1996, the United States Rugby Foundation designed a program to encourage coaches to complete coaching and referee clinics sponsored by USA Rugby. The US Rugby Foundation has awarded over 300 grants total, and will continue this initiative to provide more grants in the coming years.

The US Rugby Foundation also provides support to coaches and referees who wish to enhance their skills at rugby academies abroad, or through international academies, courses and exchanges.

If you are a coach, referee, or are thinking about becoming one, and have completed a USA Rugby sanctioned Coach’s or Referee’s clinic, keep your eye out for the opening of the Coaches & Referees grant application to be considered.
