For over a decade, Play Rugby USA has brought youth development and sports education programs to boys and girls of all ages and abilities in New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The majority of children in our program come from under-served communities where they face many barriers to achieving long-term educational and social success. Play Rugby provides these deserving kids with opportunities to Go Forward and develop meaningful life skills by being a part of a team and positive community, where compassionate and dedicated mentors nurture each child’s development.
We hope we can count on your support of this momentous evening and look forward to seeing you there!
