Putting Kids in Position to Achieve
To engage is to get involved. It is to tackle the challenges in front of you. It is to put you and your team in the best position to do great things.
The Engage Foundation is a nonprofit that teaches kids how to engage in life by providing new, free and safe opportunities to participate in activities that are challenging, inspiring and underrated. The activities are diligently selected to build individual character, teamwork and sportsmanship.
With its founding based in non-tackle rugby, Engage helps kids excel by showing them the invaluable life skills rugby naturally instills, the bond among teammates and an appreciation for life spent in motion.
Engage is officially recognized and supported by USA Rugby, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Tucson, and the Boys and Girls Club of Tucson. We hope to share this with more organizations around Tucson to engage our kids in life and love for our community.
Rugby is the fastest growing sport in America. Though adult rugby is primarily a full contact sport, youth rugby offers safe, non-tackle touch leagues for kids as young as six. To give more kids an opportunity to join this movement, Engage provides the following programs:
Hosting mini clinics for nonprofits like the Boys and Girls Club and donating balls to each clubhouse for their use while we are away.
Hosting kids from all over the city in our Co-ed Touch Rugby League, which provides each kid with an athletic kit including bag, water bottle, rugby ball and Engage PACK jersey.
Donating cleats to participants in our league who could not otherwise own a pair of their own.
Hosting additional recreational and social activities throughout the year to increase the bond amongst our PACK.
