It all started with a phone call. We knew we wanted to do something that would make a difference and have a massive impact on girl’s rugby in the U.S., we just weren’t sure where to start. Our first meeting in San Diego was full of ideas about how we could provide more opportunities for girls to play rugby in a positive, supportive, and inspiring environment. But what would set us apart? How could we ensure we would make a difference?
We knew that opportunities for girls to play rugby at a young age were sparse and we wanted to change that. We also wanted to make sure that our passion for the values of the game were heavily incorporated, which led to the idea for our values-based curriculum. From our own involvement in rugby, we knew that if we could provide the right experience for young girls, just imagine what impact that would make on their lives and the lives of others.
After days of brainstorming and planning, Girls Rugby Inc. was born. We knew it would be a lot of work to get it off the ground, but we were determined. Rugby provides the opportunity for girls to be athletic and healthy, but more importantly, rugby teaches girls life skills that will transfer to every area of their life. It is our goal to bring that experience to girls all over the country and help her reach her potential through rugby.
We believe in rugby for her.
