Empowering youth through rugby to be future achievers and leaders in our community...
The Quad City Rugby Foundation is an extension of the Quad City Irish Rugby Club and is responsible for offering opportunities for youth in the region to experience the great game of rugby when it may not be easily accessible due to lack of exposure and/or opportunity. Rugby can be a powerful tool and the skills learnt to play the game, learning the culture, experience working with teammates and partaking in physical activates will develop great decision makers and future achievers and leaders.
As a not-for-profit organization, the funds raised for our foundation go towards grants for cleats, kit, athletic clothing, CIPP fees and player dues. In some cases, even subsidizing camps for development of players, coaches and referees. All for the betterment of our region and the great game of rugby!
“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers.”
