Scholarship Fund

The Kevin Fox Memorial Scholarship Fund: will award (2) $1,000 College Scholarships on an annual basis to (2) deserving players from the Rugby Ohio High School Community in memory of Kevin Fox. Kevin was a member of Brunswick Rugby who passed away far too soon. His team and family along with Rugby Ohio helped establish the Kevin Fox Scholarship fund in his memory to help other rugby players continue their education after graduation.

Youth Development:

Rugby Ohio has local leagues for children ages 5-12 who want to learn to play. Rookie Rugby, also called flag rugby, will teach children the basic skills in a fun and positive team setting. The programs are fun, fast and inclusive! The rugby games and activities are dynamic and engaging, and keep every participant moving throughout every session. The goal is to always create a respectful and supportive learning environment for all involved and to give every boy and girl a positive and fun first rugby experience.
