Mission of Tiger Rugby Foundation
At the Tiger Rugby Foundation, our mission is to support the University of Memphis rugby team and provide students with unparalleled opportunities to excel in the sport of rugby while fostering personal growth and character development. Committed to the principles of integrity, teamwork, and leadership, we strive to empower deserving players through financial support, scholarships, and mentorship, creating an environment where they can thrive both on and off the field.
Our foundation is dedicated to ensuring that financial barriers never hinder a student’s ability to participate in rugby. We provide essential support by offering scholarships, covering the costs of uniforms, equipment, and travel expenses for games and tournaments. This commitment to financial support has yielded exceptional results, including numerous championships, winning seasons, and a remarkable #2 ranking in the United States in 2023. The tangible impact of our foundation’s support is evident in the team’s success and the invaluable experiences gained by student-athletes.
Rugby, to us, is more than just a sport; it is a profound platform for personal and collective growth. We believe that rugby instills values and life skills that extend beyond the playing field. The traditions of the game emphasize teamwork, leadership development, and respect for authority and fellow players. Through rugby, we aim to provide a stable and transformative experience that prepares our student-athletes for the challenges and opportunities they will encounter throughout their lives.
The coaching staff at the University of Memphis rugby team, supported by the Tiger Rugby Foundation, is committed to building up young men in key areas of character development. We emphasize the values of integrity, courage, commitment, leadership, class, and poise. By instilling these qualities, we not only create successful athletes but also prepare individuals who will make positive contributions to their communities and society at large.
In summary, the Tiger Rugby Foundation is dedicated to transforming lives through rugby excellence. We believe in providing financial support that goes beyond the scoreboard, enabling students to participate, compete, and succeed in rugby while fostering character development and lifelong skills. Our commitment to integrity, teamwork, and leadership ensures that the impact of our foundation extends far beyond the confines of the rugby pitch, shaping the future leaders of our communities. Together, we build a legacy of success and character that lasts a lifetime.
Thanks so much for your support of Tiger Rugby.
