Engage Kicks Off with a Bang

Posted by Matt Schmidt | Sep 21, 2018 | 0 Comments

Last Sunday the Engage Foundation kicked off its second annual Youth Co-ed Touch Rugby League with over 60 kids from all over town, including kids from the Boys and Girls Club of Tucson, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Tucson, foster families, the military and the Arizona Schools for the Deaf and Blind. Engage is a non-profit that was established by Matt Schmidt to provide kids with new, free and safe opportunities to participate in activities that are challenging, inspiring and underrated. 

Kids who participate in this year's league will receive free coaching, games, photos and an athletic kit consisting of a rugby ball, water ball and bag. Cleats will be provided to kids who need them courtesy of Engage. They will be properly fitted at Tucson's sport store "The Shop" to ensure that the shoes are the right size.

Each Sunday will consist of a Lesson (Family, Respect, Passion, Preparation, Service, Heart) and a Skill (Passing, Moving Forward, Back-Lines, Committment, Defensive Lines), followed by games. Engage's mascot is the Pack, representing a group of different animals that work together to accomplish a goal. The four teams this year are the Gila Monsters, Javelinas, Bobcats and Rattlers.

Next year, Engage will expand its program to offer other activities that are challenging and fun.
