WHO WE ARE
Atlanta Youth Rugby (AYR) aims to build character and athleticism through rugby while fostering sportsmanship and community in a fun, safe, and inclusive environment. It was founded in 2006 by Stewart Haddock, a dad who was looking for a local Atlanta rugby league for his son - and quickly found out there wasn't one in existence. Now AYR currently runs both core and community programs that offer rugby training to a variety of ages and backgrounds. Rugby - unlike soccer, football, or almost every other team sport, requires constant reliance on your teammates (and constant movement) to succeed. This team spirit is rugby’s true magic and why the character the game instills is so strong.

Rugby is about respect, confidence, and stewardship. The number one driver is to build better outcomes for children. We are in different neighborhoods throughout Atlanta and offer exactly the same experience to all of them, scholarship or non-scholarship. Last year we served 2200 students with 85 percent of them being hispanic or African American and 1650 of them living in underserved communities. Our nonprofit partners include The Ascent Project, WINGS for Kids, CAMP Best Friends, Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCA and Atlanta Public Schools.

AYR SAFEPLAY
To promote safety awareness and prevention of unsafe play, AYR has built on our past achievements (trainers at every contact scrimmage, increasing the use of certified referees, baseline concussion testing, etc.) to create a SafePlay approach that all our sides will follow. A key component is the ‘Law of the Week’, taken from World Rugby and adapted to our curriculum. All GRU teams will be encouraged to focus on training the top ‘Laws’ properly, and referees told to enforce them.

Created with input from AYR coach Samantha Ellmore, Colton Cariaga and others from Life University, as well as input from Kurt Weaver, Youth and High School Director at USA Rugby, and International Rugby Board (IRB) certified referee Russ Wofford, we hope the AYR SafePlay approach will serve as a model for the GRU and beyond.
