Medran talks rugby and the Olympics
YMCA of South Alabama hosted a free Rookie Rugby clinic last month, bringing over 60 participants and counselors together to learn more about the newest Olympic sport. The attendees had an opportunity last month to learn Rookie Rugby from one of the best, Brandy Medran, Youth Development Coordinator for USA Rugby. Medran spent over two hours with the participants, on a scorching summer morning, teaching the basic principles of Rookie Rugby and demonstrating to the staff rugby's numerous benefits. The introduction was well-received by all, and the YMCA of South Alabama has now added Flag Rugby to their Fall programming. A huge thanks to Christina Jones of YSAL for helping the kids GIVE RUGBY A TRY!
