Jacksonville Axemen Rugby League

Duval County School Sports to benefit from Movie Premier

“The future of all sports, and life in general, lays in the Youth”, said Spinner Howland. “Sports do so much for school aged kids. Sure the initial thoughts are towards health and exercise, and that in itself is reason enough to support this effort, but there is a lot more than the physical advantages happening. It is a release for some, a savior for others, and a way to gain social interaction that may not be available elsewhere. And even more importantly, it allow students to work as a team with people they often don’t know, to achieve a goal. This is very much like the adult world where co-workers are your teammates on projects. Sports is more than just a game and so much is gained from participating.”

Although Rugby is not a sport played in Duval schools, the Axemen have had players from a variety of sports that have prepared them for the rigors of such a tough game, and they are excited to be able to do a small part in the effort to save as many sports as possible in the Jacksonville area.
