Belmont Shore Youth Rugby’s aim is to provide a high level of rugby skills for all the youth in the Long Beach area so that every player is given the opportunity to fulfill their potential within a positive, vibrant & safe environment. Our club ethos is that all the players should enjoy their sport, meet new friends, and learn about participating positively in a team sport, which is the essence of the game of rugby. We ask parents to encourage their children and if possible come and watch them at training, and to attend games, as the players do enjoy it more when their parents and family are on the side line cheering them on. Our ultimate aim is to create Elite Rugby Players for the collegiate and men’s professional level rugby clubs. Being part of the Belmont Shore Rugby Football Club makes this target feasible.
