Each year more and more institutions of higher learning are adding rugby to their athletic programs, and many offer very attractive financial aid packages or scholarships for rugby players.
As an Olympic sport, rugby is gaining more and more attention in the US each day. As such, the US national team has become increasingly competitive and both the women's and men's national teams are now ranked as some of the best in the world. Players on the national teams get to play all over the world and explore the sport they love. Pretty sweet!
