Rugby NorCal is the governing body for Youth and High School Rugby in Northern California. We are a 501c3 registered non-profit organization. Our mission is to serve the Membership by promoting the enjoyment of rugby for all, preserving the image and history of rugby, and developing all aspects of the sport, focusing on player safety, to enable rugby to be a recognized presence in Northern California. Rugby NorCal is focusing on two specific initiatives this year that we need your help to ensure their success! The first initiative is the new Player Welfare Program (PWP), and the second is focused on youth outreach and development through the implementation of Rookie Rugby and Try On Rugby Programs and Leagues. If we are able to meet, or better yet, exceed our goal of $20,000, the Athletic Trainer costs for all Rugby NorCal Programs will be almost covered, lessening the administrative and financial burden on each club, allowing them to focus on helping more children in their own communities participate with their clubs. Reaching our goal will also enable us to pay for equipment and the man hours necessary to run Rookie Rugby and Try on Rugby programs all over our region. Read more
