Our 2018 NYC Rugby Cup was a huge success! Over 50 flag rugby teams from elementary through high school descended on Randall’s Island for the opportunity to showcase both their skills and their Go Forward attitudes. The day was filled with sun, smiles, some incredible rugby and even better sportsmanship and community building.
Thank you to everyone who was a part of this special day, including the coaches, parents, teachers, volunteers and Play Rugby staff. We wouldn’t be able to bring the joy of the game and the life-changing impact of our program to these students without each and every one of you!

A VERY special shout out and congratulations to our Go Forward Award Winners! Their sportsmanship and team spirit was noticed by opposing coaches through the entire day. Coaches and parents should be proud!
