Volunteer to help youth rugby grow.

VOLUNTEERS ARE THE FUEL OF OUR EXISTENCE - WE NEED YOUR HELP!

The AYRU is an 11-year old non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to developing boys and girls youth rugby in Albuquerque, and is sanctioned by USA Rugby (governing body for all rugby in the USA).  Volunteers are our fuel and lifeline - our league could not survive without the amazing dedication of the coaches and volunteers that currently help.

BUT, WE NEED MORE HELP.  Please consider lending a hand, small or large, in the many different ways possible.  CONTACT US AT at nm_ayru@yahoo.com if you are interested.

We get paid in one currency only; RUGBY SMILES.  The best currency in the world!

There are many ways to help...

BE A COACH!!

PROMISE - Coaching youth rugby will be one of the most rewarding things you've ever done, and a great way to give back to the kids in your community.  Rugby playing kids are happy kids, staying fit, with lots of smiles.  To be a coach in the AYRU you would: 

  • Commit 6-8 hours of practice, prep and match time a week.
  • Pay no out-of-pocket expenses for your team.
  • Become USA Rugby Certified - Fees paid by the AYRU
  • Recieve other coaching training by the AYRU
  • Recieve Positive Coaching Alliance Training - Fees paid by the AYRU
  • Receive mandatory nationally credited concussion training
  • Receive optional CPR and first aid training
  • Go through a background check by USA Rugby

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! - Coaching youth touch rugby is easy to learn, and a great first step to get involved with the game.

LEARN FROM EXPERIENCED COACHES - All new coaches are paired as assitants to experienced, expert AYRU coaches in an established club. We will help you learn the ins and outs of being an awesome youth rugby coach.
