About the Rugby Delaware Foundation [Formerly DRF]

The Rugby Delaware Foundation is a non-profit organization 501(c)(3) dedicated to the promotion and growth of rugby in Delaware. Particular emphasis is given to educating new audiences, especially among Delaware youth, on the benefits of participating in a competitive, physically demanding, global sport which is widely recognized for its character and team building attributes. Rugby will be positioned as different from other sports in that, while highly competitive, it is played in a fun, friendly spirit that bonds participants together in a global family of friendships with teammates and opponents that often last a lifetime.


Mission Statement
