Missoula Youth Rugby Union State Championships Description:
Montana Youth Rugby Union State Championship, hosted by Missoula Youth Rugby Association, will be held at the Pitch at Fort Missoula, 2500 CCC Rd, Missoula, MT on May 27th starting at 9:00 a.m..

The Montana Youth Rugby Union (MYRU) has a large, robust registered player base. Ranging in age from 10 -18, all will be in attendance and playing throughout the day. Several varsity Rugby college programs have also committed to include recruiting events. Additionally, they will have informational booths outlining the full scope of the Rugby community here in the US. Rugby is a full contact, evasion sport and is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. The Rugby World Cup is the 3rd most popular sporting event in the world. Large, often untapped, scholarships exist across the spectrum of college and junior colleges, including the Big Ten and other Division I schools, Ivy League, mid-tier public and private universities all the way down to small independent schools. There are many rugby traditions, but one of the most important is the Post Match Social. After a hard-fought match, players, coaches and families gather over food to meet each other to discuss the match. New relationships are formed, which are important to what rugby stands for. Players and former players finding themselves in cities or places where they might not know anyone, always know that they can connect with a local club and immediately form a bond forged through rugby. We’re expecting 2500 to 3000 attendees for this year’s event!
