FACT: Rugby is well known for its lifelong friendships; built through team spirit, on and off the field camaraderie, fitness, discipline and hard work. And playing rugby is fun!
FACT: USA Rugby has recognized Albuquerque and New Mexico as one of the top three hot beds for the growth of youth rugby in the USA. Rugby is the fastest growing youth sport in America, played by over 500 youth and high school players in Albuquerque alone.
Albuquerque Youth Rugby United (AYRU) is a registered non-profit, all volunteer organization seeking community sponsorship to help us continue to introduce and develop the great game of rugby (non-contact and contact) to boys and girls from the ages of 7 to 15 in the Albuquerque region. We will embark on our 12th season from January to June in 2015 and hope to double the number of young players involved in the sport.
Your generous support enables us to keep our player fees below one hundred dollars, and still provide every player with a ball and uniform, and food after every match. Donations also enable us to scholarship at-need kids who would otherwise not be able to afford playing any team sport at all.
We are grateful for your consideration and any donation you can make – even just $10 can help us impact the lives of young people in Albuquerque. If you have any questions at all about making a contribution, or other ways that you can assist and help the AYRU, please don’t hesitate to call or email me at the details below. All donations can be made by check or bank transfer while our new website is under development.
Thank you for your support of Albuquerque Youth Rugby United!
