Washington DC Youth Rugby was founded in 2004 with the mission to reach out to under-served children in Washington DC to promote health and physical fitness and to teach valuable life skills through the sport of rugby.

The summer program accepts boys and girls from five to 14 years old regardless of athletic ability. Washington DC Youth Rugby also supports Bell Multi-Cultural High School boys and girls rugby program located in Columbia Heights.

All of our programs are free to kids and we highly encourage parents to participate and volunteer if possible.


The Honourable Joe Hockey will be hosting a reception celebrating rugby across the globe on Thursday August 25 from 5:30 – 9:00 pm at the Embassy of Australia.

Please join Washington DC Youth Rugby patron Ambassador Hockey to toast the Australian Wallabies and USA Eagles participation in the Olympics for the first time since 1924.  All proceeds to benefit Washington DC Youth Rugby, a non-profit (501c3) promoting health and fitness through the game of rugby.
