What is Try on Rugby?
A USA Rugby initiative dedicated to growing the number of girls and women in rugby. Try on Rugby provides educational and promotional materials for introducing rugby into schools with the goal of starting sustainable girls' programs.

How Does Try on Rugby Work?
Try on Rugby has multiple components for getting young girls and women involved.
- Try on Rugby Participation Program - The Try on Rugby Participation Program offers starter kits for anyone looking to introduce the sport of rugby to young girls. Starter kits contain rugby balls, flags, cones, and an extensive curriculum of flag rugby, fitness and nutrition, and life skills for girls under 18.
