Safety and Risk Management Grants

The United States Rugby Foundation has long placed a great emphasis on injury prevention and are continually looking at ways to minimize the risk of rugby injuries, especially when it concerns those in youth and high school competitions or programs.

Along those lines, the USRF didn’t hesitate in showing its support for an online high school rugby injury study, designed to benefit all high school rugby players registered with USA Rugby. The study is headed up by Dr. Dawn Comstock, herself an experienced rugby player, coach and referee.
