New Hampshire Youth Rugby

The primary goal of New Hampshire Youth Rugby (NHYR) is to bring rugby to the youth of coastal New Hampshire, providing them with the ability to learn and partake in the game of rugby.  By doing this we hope to foster a love of the game, improve decision making skills, teach communication skills, and develop camaraderie between teammates, opposition players, referees, coaches, and spectators. NHYR and USA Rugby encourage a balanced attitude where players can develop and grow from the mental, emotional, and physical aspects of rugby.
