Challenge coins are awarded to players, coaches, volunteers, or anyone involved with Seattle Rugby Club.
Our current awardees have demonstrated commitment and unity to our program and are very involved with the community. Involvement includes everything from mentoring youth programs, supporting local charities, and volunteering their time to support the program wherever needed.
Our program wouldn’t be where it is today without the support from our awardees. We cannot thank you enough and look forward to continue the tradition of this honor.
