Who We Are

The Eastside Lions Youth Academy is a volunteer-driven organization and is a 501 (C) 3 non-profit organization. We are very proud of our accomplishments and the contribution our organization has made to our youth and society over the years.

From our humble beginnings in 2007, we have grown to become one of the most respected youth organizations in the Pacific Northwest that use rugby as the medium to develop people for the future. We have multiple boys and girls teams catering for grades 1-12, and serve more than 200 players from the Greater Seattle area. We have a strong history of mentoring and developing character, sportsmanship and teamwork in young athletes through the wonderful game of rugby. We have a high quality, certified staff, and a committed parent support organization.

Rugby continues to be the perfect means to achieve our social goals as it is one of the fastest growing sports in the USA and aims to promote a culture of diversity and respect. The Eastside Lions Youth Academy is purposely designed to be a friendly, fun introduction to Rugby for girls and boys that can accompany the players right the way through to High School graduation.
