The Nittany Lion Rugby Association is a not for profit organization whose mission is to grow and promote the game of rugby in the central-Pennsylvania region and provide support to the Penn State Rugby program. In Centre County, at Penn State branch campuses, and beyond the NLRA works to support the Penn State Rugby Motto of “building champions and shaping futures”.

Camps, clinics, outreach, and informational support drive the self-sustaining group to create and support initiatives across the region. The NLRA aims to promote the game of rugby for community members at all levels of experience and knowledge.
