Minnesota Youth Rugby knows that all parents need important information when deciding to enter their children in new sports programs. We’ve structured our organization to reflect the standards of established youth rugby organizations around the country and the world. Below you will find information on safety, governing structure, the game of rugby, and important contacts. If you have any questions or would like to see more resources, please contact Sean@minnesotayouthrugby.com.
Minnesota Youth Rugby provides an opportunity for everyone in your family to participate in the game. We offer non-contact Rookie Rugby in school physical education classes and youth community centers around the state. MYR also commissions and governs the Middle School and High School Competitions, as well as hosts the annual Minnesota State Rugby Tournament the first weekend of June.
There are many opportunities to get off the sidelines and get into rugby! We always need coaches, referees, and volunteers to help kids have the best experience with the game. It is easy to gain education and get involved in your area.
Coaching a sports team can be one of the most rewarding jobs you do in your lifetime. As the sport of rugby grows, so does our need for more coaches. Rugby is an easy sport to learn and teach with USA Rugby’s great resources and materials. Check out how you can get involved today!
Officiating any sport is not an easy task, but it is a role that is integral to the game. Rugby refereeing is a unique position where you work to maintain the continuity of the game, focusing on allowing the players to play instead of just blowing your whistle.
Another great way to try on rugby is by becoming a rugby administrator. Getting involved behind the scenes to create new programs, help with running leagues, and setting up events are just a few things that grow this game we all love. Every team needs a team parent!
MYR organizes youth rugby in Minnesota from elementary to high school programs. We work closely with the Minnesota Rugby Union to coordinate referees, offer certification programs and create a development pathway to collegiate rugby.
