Sarah Kaler was introduced to rugby by a grass roots team in the state of Iowa in the late 1990s while studying social work as a college student. Her love of the game continued as a club side player in northern Wisconsin. Since her playing days, she along with her family are ardent supporters of The Saint Louis Royal Ramblers, Lindenwood University Mens and Women’s Rugby Club and the River City Rugby Club. She has also served as a Team Manager and player for the Olde Barking Dogs Rugby team and has participated in rugby festivals in Argentina, Wales and New Zealand.
Most recently, Sarah has been involved with youth rugby in the Saint Louis area as an organizer, coach and parent since 2012. She has spent the last year traveling as a parent of a U14 player with the USA South Panthers. Sarah and her husband are passionate about providing opportunities for youth everywhere to play rugby.
In 2015 they established the Kaler Family Rugby Scholarship to provide financial aid to high school students who wish to continue playing rugby at the collegiate level. Sarah also continues her passion for social work by serving as a member of the Board of Directors of the O’Fallon YMCA where she has been a member and involved with various projects for nearly 14 years.
