After helping disadvantaged rugby players in Washington DC, SBA USA decided to help rugby players in Las Vegas. In January 2016, the SBA donated $250 to the Las Vegas Rugby Academy (“LVRA”) a club which started as a Training and Clinic Academy and now has clubs teams, flag league and an in school clinic to spread the sport of rugby. LVRA was founded in 2009 by ex-Eagles player Vaha Esikia. LVRA is a non-profit organization focused on promoting and enhancing rugby, while educating the local community on the fundamentals of the sport in a safe, fun and family-oriented environment. http://www.lasvegasrugbyacademy.com/
The donation made by SBA was used to sponsor 3 students and purchase 3 rugby balls. The 3 students sponsored were Donald Lombard Jr., Haniteli Latu and Sione Ngaue.
SBA looks forward to a long and successful relationship with LVRA!
