Description of Activities:
Santa Clara Youth Rugby (SCYR) is an organization under the umbrella of the national body, USA Rugby (
). The aim of SCYR is to introduce young children to the great game of rugby, the fastest growing sport in the USA.
Goals for the next 12 months:
Expand the SCYR to 16 teams (about 200 players)
Foster a strong relationship with the local communities
Host a Silicon Valley Championship Tournament
Recruit and certify new coaches and referees
Teach the spirit of rugby
Need for financial assistance:
One of the aims of SCYR is not to exclude any players, either because of lack of athletic ability or financial considerations. We would like to keep the costs as low as possible and to offer scholarships to students who are unable to pay. We currently have no financial support from any of the schools and there are many expenses, such as:
Specialized equipment, such as tackling bags, balls and tees
Field use fees
All donations are tax deductible and are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and careful consideration.
