A new opportunity for children in Cascade County to play rugby is coming in 2024, and it happens to be one of the fastest growing sports across the world.  Especially for women, according to Brittanica.  It's also played in many countries, including Uruguay, Spain and Japan.


Origins of the sport date back to the early 1800's from the Rugby School, and now kids in our area will be able to partake in this exciting sport very soon.
