Community Coaches

Utah Warriors Pathway & Community Coaches

The Utah Warriors are committed to growing the game of rugby at all levels, from youth to professional. As such, the Warriors have designated Community Coaches to work with local youth, high school, university, and club teams to assist with that team’s development on and off the field. These Community Coaches come at NO COST to the teams they work with. It’s part of a sponsored program, supported by the Utah Warriors Rugby Foundation, with the goal of giving back through rugby to the boys and girls in the state of Utah.
