Welcome to the Florida Youth Rugby Union (FYRU) website. We were formed in 2007 to promote and facilitate the development, growth and enjoyment of Rugby for Youth and High School athletes across Florida.
Like rugby in the rest of the United States, Youth and High School rugby has seen significant growth in Florida. We have teams from as far North as Jacksonville, South to Miami and West to Niceville. With Rugby’s inclusion into the 2016 Olympic Games we are seeing this growth continue to gather large amounts momentum. Currently, Florida has three players represented in Team USA’s Olympic Sevens team. We hope produce many more over the coming years.
The FYRU is proud to work in partnership with both USA Rugby and the Florida Rugby Union to achieve achieve our goal of 10,000 registered rugby players by 2020. Please explore our site and learn more about inclusive and family based sport in the Sunshine State!!
