"The Match Day Tent that we received from the Rugby Foundation has been a HUGE source of pride for our club! Since our program is a Summer Program, having the shade and protection has been wonderful for the players. Every match we have been to, the tent has been there standing proudly. Watching the boys and girls gather there and socializing before their matches and actually talking to each other and finding common ground and new friendships has been a true joy. 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."

"The tent provided the needed shelter, the coaches from The Rugby Advantage adjusted the schedule for additional hydration, watermelon and shade breaks. The skills of the ruggers improved throughout the camp, and they were 'Made in the Shade'. On behalf of Rugby New Jersey, I want to thank the US Rugby Foundation for providing us with a much-needed personalized tent."
