MYRO has been working to promote and expand youth rugby at all levels with some success. In the spring of 2017, the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) will be the first state association to recognize both girls and boys’ rugby as a high school varsity sport. However, there is still a great deal of work required to bring our game and the values it promotes to children across the state. We are working with school system Health & Wellness programs, with community-based organizations (e.g. YMCA’s, Boys & Girls Clubs) and with municipal recreation departments, providing trained coaches, curriculum materials, and non-contact introductory programs. We are assisting players who want to advance in the game with access to developmental camps and select side competition. But we need the communities help to make this event a success!
The Massachusetts Youth Rugby Organization is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization formed in 2010 to promote physical fitness, teamwork and leadership skills through the game of rugby. All proceeds from the 2021 MYRO will go directly to supporting, educating, promoting and fostering the development of youth rugby in Massachusetts.
