Women's Rugby in Kansas City
It’s a well-kept secret, but the growth of Rugby for many years has included more and more women playing our great game.
They play under the same Laws of the Game and the same extraordinary ethos of integrity and discipline; they play with the same passion and competitive spirit; they play with the same love of vigorous, rough-and-tumble team sport. They love Rugby just like the men! It is no stretch to say that the US Women’s National Team is one of the best in the world! And in the great tradition of Rugby, their post-match social events are symbolized by respect and sportsmanship. The Kansas City Jazz is the local ladies Rugby club. They have been in business for over twenty years and continue to be a beacon of athletic spirit in mid-America. At this time we are working to build a helpful relationship any way we can. We have shared our practice facility, shared our game-day venue and shared some post-match time on a Saturday afternoon. We continue to look forward to growing our kinship with the Kansas City Jazz. But of perhaps even greater impact, the Foundation has financially sponsored the first high school girls team in the state of Kansas. Your donations to the Foundation helped make this possible. Hopefully, there will be other high school girls teams following in their footsteps. If that comes to pass, the Foundation will be there to assist.
