The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Council voted Tuesday in favor of recognizing rugby as an official MIAA sport beginning with the 2016-17 school year. Last week, the MIAA Board of Directors voted, 12-1, against adding the sport, but the vote acted only as a recommendation.
Massachusetts Youth Rugby Organization president Bill Good was pleasantly surprised with the decision, which he said passed by a vast majority.
“It’s outstanding,” said Good. “I’ve played, coached and been an administrator for close to 30 years. I think it’s an extraordinary sport, it’s got a real set of values in terms of sportsmanship and teamwork and discipline.
“I think this is going to, I hope, give a lot more kids an opportunity to see the game, participate and enjoy the game.”
Rugby will become the MIAA’s 35th sport. There are currently 19 boys’ teams and five girls’ teams across the state, mostly in suburban towns. Three of the five Catholic Conference schools (Xaverian, BC High, and St. John’s Prep) currently field rugby teams.
Good hopes the decision encourages more schools to consider adding rugby.
“I think this makes it an easier sell,” he said. “It gives us a credibility and a legitimacy that is going to help the growth of the sport.”
Over the next year-plus, Good said his goal will be to work with the MIAA to come up with policies and procedures that will govern the sport in the best way possible.
“USA Rugby has safety policies,” said Good. “I don’t think it’s going to be a huge step to mesh the two, but certainly we want to work with the MIAA to make sure that the game is safe No. 1, enjoyable for the kids, competitive, and provides a good experience.”
This year’s state rugby championships will be held May 23 at Foley Stadium in Worcester.
