The Rugby Shop and Girls Rugby are excited to announce a 3-year partnership starting in 2021!
Girls Rugby Inc. and the Rugby Shop have put together a strategic partnership that will start in 2021 and run through 2023. This partnership will provide fans of Girls Rugby with an online shopping portal so they can show their support of the organization as well as having The Rugby Shop provide on field wear for all participants as well as coaches and staff. The shop will be an ongoing and evolving shop with new items coming regularly.
Girls Rugby’s mission is to empower girls to reach their potential through sport. By combining flag rugby with their unique curriculum of weekly values and leadership-based lessons, they are redefining sport for girls. Each week the girls learn and hone rugby skills and put those skills into practice on game days. At the same time, they participate in experiential learning opportunities where they explore lessons in leadership and positive core values through education, questioning, sharing and activities designed to support them in their daily lives.
The Rugby Shop is made up of a group of people who are remarkably familiar with rugby across the globe and are all rugby first people. At the end of the day the mandate is to grow the game of rugby across the Americas from the grassroots.
Having a strategic partnership with clubs from grassroots to professional puts The Rugby Shop in a great position to help Girls Rugby grow their brand across the world with fantastic designs, garments, and marketing strategies.
Jay MacDonald, CEO and Co-Founder of the Rugby Shop:Partnering with Girls Rugby just makes good sense. Sharing values in grassroots participation makes this a very great fit for The Rugby Shop. We are very happy and proud to bring value to this program as well as its participants and supporters for years to come!
Jenn Heinrich, CEO and Co-Founder of Girls Rugby:We are excited to partner with The Rugby Shop for all our apparel needs. We appreciate that they have spent a considerable amount of time getting to know our business and understanding the unique needs of our organization, as well as working with us to source new products that will better meet the needs of a playing community of young girls.
