Grow the Game


Who We Are

USRPA is an independent players union established by, and operated for the benefit of, professional rugby players in America. We are the recognized collective bargaining representative for the Players on the United States National Teams (both Men's and Women's 7s and 15s) run by the national governing body, USA Rugby, and having secured majority support from MLR Players, we are currently seeking recognition from Major League Rugby to initiate a similar relationship with the league.

What We Do

Our mission is to serve, protect, represent, promote, and develop our Players both on and off the pitch.

For our sport at large, we seek to help grow rugby in the North American sporting landscape, and in our representative capacity we work to ensure that our Players are always a central stakeholder in this process. This approach is reflected in our motto, "Grow the Player, Grow the Game."
