Get Into Rugby

The Get Into Rugby (GIR) program is a campaign to get as many Ugandans as possible playing rugby country-wide. The program started in 2013 and is targeting all ages with the different versions of the game. For example; tag-rugby starting with those under 7 years of age and older, or touch-rugby for those retiring from competitive rugby.
