Atlanta Youth Rugby Cleat Drive & Camp Giveaway Opportunity

June 10, 2021

Atlanta Youth Rugby (AYR)’s mission is to build character and athleticism while fostering diversity, sportsmanship and community in a fun, safe, and inclusive atmosphere.

We operate all over Atlanta serving nearly 3000 kids annually. 45% of our young ruggers are female, 80% identify as ethnic minority, and 85% are from under-resourced zip codes. 

Many youth players find themselves lacking in cleats and proper equipment.  AYR is dedicated to outfitting everyone. Throughout June, AYR is hosting a cleat drive to help underserved ruggers in the Atlanta community get on the field and play the greatest team sport!

With the community’s help, we can provide cleats to many deserving kids who want to play. Donate online or bring a pair of new or gently worn cleats and join us on June 19th at 8 PM as we watch Rugby ATL take on Houston at home.  If you have cleats to donate but cannot make the game? Please send an email to


Your kid, age 5 to 14, can get early exposure to one of the fastest-growing sports in the United States. 

Enter to win one week of rugby camp (Value $180) for your prospective rugger this July.  

NO PURCHASE or CLEAT DONATION is required to enter.

Please make sure your child will be available to get to the camp during the week their age group is offered.
