The TRU is proud to announce that we are partnering with USA Oztag (Flag Rugby).
USA Oztag will be The official non contact rugby league of the TRU. Oztag (Flag Rugby) is one of the fastest growing sports with an Official TAG World Cup played by nations all over the world which include New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Ireland and Japan to name a few.
The 2018 TAG World Cup event will be held November 1-4, 2018 in Coffs Harbour in Australia.
TRU President Kirk Tate said, “This is a no brainier partnership! USA Oztag is a professional organization with all the tools to grow our sport with the non contact version.” The TRU is committed to grow rugby at the grass root level and with USA Oztag’s commitment to perform clinics within Texas Schools, we will ensure kids all over the state will be exposed to the game.
Rick Medina, USA Oztag National Manager believes that this is a partnership that will benefit both organizations. “The skills that individuals will learn and the exposure to rugby will grow both the contact and non contact versions of rugby” said Medina. “Our ability to perform clinics in our schools and provide lesson plans for our school districts will help promote our sport at the grass root level.”
Oztag has in excess of 350000+ players throughout the tag playing nations catering to both male and females players between the ages of 5-65+. Oztag performs in excess of 10,000 free, 40-45min school skill development clinics in Australia alone every year and will increase this dramatically within the US in 2018/19 and beyond.
International events have been held in Hawaii, New Zealand, and Ireland with events due to be held In Vancouver, Canada & Austin, Texas in 2019 and 2020
