Program Provider Spotlight: American Youth Rugby League Association & Rhode Island Rebellion Rugby League

By Kristin Elliott, Hub ELO Coordinator for E-Cubed

Posted on 4.3.14

“Impressive” is the word Hub ELO teacher-mentors are using to describe the Rhode Island Rebellion Rugby League‘s first high school session. Never heard the word “scrum” before? Neither had students from  E-Cubed, Alvarez, or JSEC, but they’re quickly picking up a sport that, three weeks ago, they had never played.

And they’re earning an elective credit!


As a big bonus, rugby coaches from as far afield as the UK and Australia are lending their time twice a week to share their love of the game with these students. 


Thanks to the American Youth Rugby League Association and RI Rebellion Rugby CEO Lawrence Almagno (top picture, far right) for bringing this fantastic program (a longtime favorite in the AfterZone) to the Hub!
