“The risk of injury in rugby is relatively low compared to American sports – such as football, ice hockey, and lacrosse - a fact borne-out by numerous studies to ascertain the risk of sports injury in different activities.”
- Lyle J. Micheli, MD
Past President of the American College of Sports Medicine

Everyone Deserves to Play Rugby
Join community leader The Strength Agenda in funding a scholarship covering the cost of participation for middle school and high school students!
We recognize families are spending large amounts of money for their kids to play sports and the cost of participation isn't getting more affordable. Because Elmhurst Rugby encourages multi-sport athletes to play our fine sport and rugby is a sport for every child in your household, we are seeking Elmhurst community leaders and donors to help defray the cost of participation. BOTTOM LINE... WE BELIEVE EVERYONE DESERVES TO PLAY RUGBY!
If interested in making a donation or offering a sponsorship specifically intended to cover the cost of membership, please contact us to discuss specifics. Both anonymous and sponsored scholarships offered.
Visit our Scholarship Page for more details on how to support and apply for a scholarship.

Our MS team competed in its first season in Spring 2019 and showed great talent and promise, consisting primarily of 7th graders competing in a league combining seventh and eighth grades.
