Our goal is to introduce rugby to the youth of our community. It is open to kids of any city. Rugby provides a sport & a place for many kids to participate where others don’t fit.  There are Girls & Boys High School teams in many of our local towns, including Hopkins. Rugby is the fastest growing team sport in the world.  Our goal is not to fight with other sports for athletes, but partner to provide more life-long opportunities for activity and character building.
