We assist youth and high school rugby clubs and community programs across the country. From Ball and Match Day Tent Grants, and Start-up Kits, to supporting Inner City Youth & High School organizations, we are helping to grow the game from the ground up by providing the basic equipment programs need to be successful.
The development of youth and high school rugby has been designated as the primary mission of the Foundation. As such, the Foundation has provided hundreds of 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 coaches and referees at USA Rugby clinics, and by providing grants to domestic and international coaching and refereeing courses; and to promote the positive image of rugby and its value of sportsmanship.
The US Rugby Foundation’s A Ball 4 All Program provides 2,000 balls a year to rugby organizations who apply for the grant. Through the program, rugby organizations have been able to bring the sport of rugby to America’s youth.
The US Rugby Foundation’s Match Day Tent Grant Program provides co-branded 10’ x 10’ pop-up tents to youth and high school clubs across the United States. Proudly display your club logo & show support for the US Rugby Foundation and rally your club on matchday!
The US Rugby Foundation assists rugby organizations that need financial help to allow them to finish or improve their playing grounds. Needs vary by organization so the Foundation provides teams specific equipment that they need.
Scholarships are open to graduating high school rugby players who are pursuing their rugby career while continuing their education at the collegiate level. Scholarship recipients are selected by the various Scholarship Committees. Scholarships will be awarded to chosen qualified candidates who submit completed applications.
