Start A New RugbyTeam

Our Mission

Our main objective as an organization is to provide more students the opportunity to play rugby. We believe schools and communities will benefit tremendously from the introduction of a rugby program, and will see the positive impacts almost instantly. Whether it be a girls team, boys team, or both; the inclusion of rugby as an offering in your school or town would be a valuable addition. 

Why Rugby

Rugby is unique from other scholastic sports, as it provides opportunities that others don’t. We believe that your students and school could benefit in the following ways:

  • Access to an Inclusive Community
  • Physical, Mental, and Emotional Health Benefits
  • Title IX Compliance
  • Scholarship and Career Opportunities
  • Education for Injury Prevention
  • Low Cost Accessible

Next Steps

Rugby PA is committed to working with anyone who is interested in starting a new club. Whether that's a high school varsity program or just a local flag league, we are here to help! Whether you are an Athletic Director, Teacher, Parent, Player, or ex-rugger, you can be a catalyst for a new team.

Please contact Rugby PA Executive Director Dylan Hamilton to let us know you intentions, and to ensure Rugby PA is supporting you in every way that we can. Most conversations with School Administrators or Local Organizations have been had before. So we want to prepare you with the right materials and answers. We also would jump at the opportunity to join you in any meetings where you feel a Rugby PA presence would benefit.
