Welcome to IRB Get Into Rugby
The IRB Vision is: Rugby - a sport for all, true to its values. Get Into Rugby is the IRB's development programme which aims to grow the Game of Rugby across the world in partnership with our Regional Associations and introduce people globally to Rugby and the values of Integrity, Respect, Solidarity, Passion and Discipline which inspire millions of people to play our Game.
In its initial phase projects will be run in Brazil, Belgium, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Germany, Mexico, Poland, Romania, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia and Zimbabwe and then expanded to many other member Unions.
This free-to-access mass participation programme is designed to assist IRB member Unions in growing the player base in their country. The Get Into Rugby site provides member Unions and their coaches and teachers with the resources and information to progressively introduce children to the Game of Rugby and encourage them to Try, Play and Stay in Rugby.
Remember, the correct preparation should be applied when playing, coaching or officiating rugby at any level.
IRB Rugby Ready
is a free to use practical resource aimed to assist Rugby at both the elite and community levels to ensure that player welfare is the paramount consideration.
A Union wanting to implement the programme should
contact their IRB Regional Staff member
for more details on accessing the programme and completing the planning process.
