Youth rugby is an outstanding opportunity to have an incredibly positive influence on young people’s lives. Your support can come in the form of working with existing Clubs in your area, helping with tournaments and travelling teams, assisting with public relations and/or fundraisers, etc.
The rugby season runs from January through April, and into May for High School Divisions that make the Playoffs. It is a perfect winter sport that generally falls in between football and baseball. The matches for high school are generally on Friday evenings and for Middle School and youth on Saturday or Sundays.
The NCYRA and its affiliate Clubs can use help on any level. The best part of getting involved is that you become part of the Rugby Family, where you are an intricate part of a team structure, making friends and helping each other out where it is needed. It can be one of the most rewarding philanthropic causes you will ever be involved in, particularly when you see the positive, tangible effects it has on the players.
The NCYRA is in the process of getting its 501(c)3 non-profit corporation status and all donations and funds will be tax deductible. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at (707) 693-8803. We would be happy to talk with you and give you some direction on how to start.
