Iowa Youth Rugby Association Hosts High School Rugby Teams in Cedar Rapids

29 Mar, 2018


For the first time in Cedar Rapids, Iowa Youth Rugby Association (IAYRA) will host 11 teams as they compete in regular season matches on April 6 at Kingston Stadium.

Since the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, where rugby had their return to the Olympics after over 90 years, rugby has been considered the fastest growing sport in the United States. Youth programs have been growing throughout the nation, and Iowa is no exception. The Iowa Youth Rugby Association has been the sanctioning body for all youth rugby in Iowa since October 2010.  The IAYRA is committed to supporting boys and girls rugby from non-contact recreational to full contact All-State teams.

The teams participating in the regular season matches represent high schools from Eastern Iowa. High school rugby in Iowa plays the 7s version of the game, the same version as the Olympics. The 7s version plays with 7 players that are allowed to be subbed in and out of the game, something that is not allowed in 15s version of the game. These rules of the 7s version are meant to keep the game fast moving and free flowing.
