The game of rugby follows the laws set by World Rugby, the International Governing body. The Laws of Rugby are available online, as a download and as iOS or Android apps. USA Rugby, our National Governing Body, also sets a number of policies and regulations. In some cases, SCYR has modified those policies to meet the needs of our members and our competitive structure and to ensure the health and well-being of our athletes. SCYR's Youth Law Variations and Youth Law Variation Quick Guide are available below as well as on our Policies, Documents, Bylaws and Minutes page.
