Kern Youth Rugby Organization Builds Community Through Sport
The Kern Youth Rugby organization, established in 2014, aims to build community through the sport of rugby.
Kids can be seen playing the sport at Emerald Cove Park in Bakersfield, California.
Julianne Byers, a player for the high school rugby team, enjoys the family atmosphere that the sport brings.
The organization offers ages 5 through 18 to compete, with the goal of reaching out to less fortunate children in Kern County.
The rugby community offers a chance for kids to learn teamwork and work together to succeed.
With the expansion of teams, the youth rugby organization hopes to foster a sense of community through the sport.
