THE POWER OF RUGBY

WHAT WE DO

MICR seeks to expand academic and athletic opportunity in low-income communities by bringing weekly Rugby College Prep mentoring sessions, a Value Based Coaching Model, academic and behavior tracking systems, as well as world class coaching to a population, in our city and in our country, seldom exposed to rugby. Through the power of a non-traditional sport, we aim to create non-traditional opportunities for travel, social development and higher education for underprivileged youth throughout Memphis.

WHERE WE WORK

We have teams training all over the city - in classrooms and on the field - everyday of the week. We compete almost every Saturday during the season everywhere from USA Stadium in Millington to Tobey Park in Midtown. Contact any of our head coaches to inquire about exact locations and training schedules, or to join us at one of our schools as we strive to continue breaking ground and redefining bright futures across Memphis.

THE FOUNDERS

Devin and Shane met in the summer of 2012 as brand new Memphians brought to the city for the first time as incoming Teach for America corps members. The recent college graduates quickly learned that they shared a common passion for rugby, teaching and social service. After coming together to start the first ever inner city rugby team in Memphis history, the two realized the potential rugby has to drastically transform opportunities in underserved communities, where the word rugby has often never been spoken. Three years, and a lot of hard work later, over 15 volunteer coaches and assistants have joined Devin and Shane and expanded MICR's reach to 4 schools. Today, over 200 young Memphians have learned that rugby is much more than a sport.
