  • Giving Back

    The Marin Highlanders Rugby Football Club’s financial aid program has been developed to assist players who can’t afford the cost to play rugby. Over the years the Marin Highlanders have given over $50,000 in financial aid. This past year we gave scholarships to approximately 15% of our players.

    The intention of the Marin Highlanders Rugby Football Club’s financial aid policy is to ensure that no child misses the opportunity to participate in the great game of rugby due to the expense of our program. Scholarship levels may vary depending on the number of applicants and their needs, but generally range from $125-$500 and there may be 4-6 scholarship players per team.

    At this time, we are accepting donations to help those who need financial assistance. Please make your tax deductible donation here.

    For the past six months the Highlanders have been working on partnering with a high level rugby club in order to boost our marketing presence and, more importantly, provide more post-Highlander options for our great student athletes.

    It gives us great pleasure to announce that we have been selected to be the regional partner of English Premier League Club the Sale Sharks (www.salesharks.com). Sale is based near the great English sporting city of Manchester and has been home to many great players.

    We will share marketing platforms, host high performance development and talent identification clinics and develop relationships through this new affiliation. We join the following clubs as partners:

    • Atlanta Phoenix
    • Memphis Inner City Rugby
    • Rugby Maryland
    • Cincinnati Rugby Club
    • New Orleans Rugby
    • Towson University

    We are honored and proud to be a part of this amazing community.

  • Seattle Seahawks Adopt Rugby Tackling

    Super Bowl champions reinvent tackling form in the NFL, adopt rugby form in order to prevent head injuries and increase efficiency.

    Not only does Pete Carroll (head coach and Redwood High graduate) narrate this, he also intersperses rugby videos, gives credit to rugby, and shows the Seahawks using the same drills that we do!
