All high school and youth rugby in Missouri is overseen by the Missouri Youth Rugby State Based Organization (SRO), MY Rugby.
To encourage growth of the game, high school girls play the 7s format of the game. The season takes place in the fall with several one day tournaments being played throughout September and October. The state champion is crowned in early November.
This is an exciting time in USA Rugby. Every year more colleges add rugby as a varsity sport complete with scholarships. Springfield's own Drury University is adding school supported rugby programs for both men and women.
As coaches, our main focus is to make sure we teach the girls to play the game safely and to give them an opportunity to succeed both on and off the pitch.
