In 1990, youth rugby in Indiana was inaugurated with the creation of a four team league in Indianapolis of about 100 male high-school participants. Little did they know Over time that has grown to over 78 teams from across Indiana with approximately 1,650 boys and girls of ages ranging from 8-18. During that time the Indiana Youth Rugby Foundation, received its 501c(3) charity status to assist with the growth of rugby in Indiana and the Rugby Indiana mission.

This year we were fortunate to be able to restart rugby in Indiana, during the pandemic. We are thankful for everyone's support and for the spring and fall rugby seasons we had. It was great to see our rugby family of coaches, referees, parents, players, and administrators come together to make it work. Now we look forward towards the next steps of growing youth and high school rugby in Indiana.

With player comments like "This game gives everyone on my team a chance to score" and "This is the greatest game ever", rugby continues to be enthusiastically embraced by the youth of our state! Because of this, we hope you will continue to support our efforts offering youth and high school aged players the option to experience rugby.
