Our Mission: To make rugby available to ALL children who want to play.

Orca Youth Rugby has been and continues to be dedicated to uplifting its players, providing them with the best quality training, character building, sportsmanship, exercise, good will and so much more. Orca aims to give any youth who wants to play, regardless of means, all of these opportunities. In order to achieve these goals we are fundraising through our already established Sarah Cantle Memorial Scholarship Fund. This fund was formed in 2019 in memory of Sarah Cantle, a beloved and devoted Orca family member who lost her battle with breast cancer.

When another Orca rugby mom and devoted volunteer, Laurie Hanna was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020, we were alarmed…even though the statistics are sadly very real. 1 in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.

So in the principled and true spirit of rugby, and in support of all rugby moms and all those impacted by cancer, we will donate a portion of all monies received to Susan G Komen in support of Laurie's Hanna's charity walk!

Laurie's 3 Day

Read how Laurie is working hard to help put an end to breast cancer.
"It was one year ago, I heard those six words that forever changed my life...Laurie, you have invasive breast cancer!! In the middle of the flipping pandemic, I started my journey with the help of so many of you. I fought with every ounce of determination I had to defeat this monster!! Surgery and chemotherapy couldn't dampen my spirit! FU Cancer- I won and will continue to do so. You definitely picked the wrong girl!!" - Laurie
