"I’ve grown so much as a person due to Play Rugby. Here I am now, 21 years old, love the sport, and I’m now working for Play Rugby USA. I am the head coach of the Academy Girls team.

Having the opportunity to give young people the same chances I had when I was their age makes me feel like I am a part of something, making a real difference."


- Kevin, former player and current Youth Development Mentor
