About

Purpose

Mountain Youth Rugby (MYR) exists to teach the sport of rugby to boys and girls in grades K-8 in the Bailey, Conifer, and Evergreen, Colorado areas of the mountain communities.

MYR is focused on developing players for a lifelong love of rugby in a safe and fun environment.

Founded in 2010, MYR is a volunteer-run organization where all proceeds are reinvested directly into the program to benefit as many young rugby players in the area as possible.

Season

MYR participates in Rugby Colorado's spring TRY developmental league, which typically has Jamborees/Games on Saturdays for six consecutive weeks in May/June. Practices start in April, pending spring snow/weather. Registration opens in March. Please visit the MYR Calendar page for more information.
