Focus on Youth Development

The development of youth and high school rugby has been designated as the primary mission of the Foundation. As such, the Foundation has provided numerous grants to meet a wide range of needs: to support and develop youth and high school rugby; to improve coaching and refereeing by promoting the attendance of high school coaches and referees at USA Rugby clinics; accelerating the development of younger promising U.S. rugby players through scholarships and international exchange programs; and to promote the positive image of rugby and its value of sportsmanship.
