Yet another report is touting the rapid growth of rugby participation in the United States. Bloomberg says the Sports & Fitness Industry Association's U.S. Trends in Team Sports Report, released earlier this week, has rugby as the fastest growing team sport in America. 

The report shows rugby growing by 81-percent from 2008-2013 and lacrosse growing by nearly 66-percent, while basketball, baseball and football participation dropped. 

The report goes on to breakdown participation boosts by age groups, too, and rugby boded well in the 6-12 range, but not quite as well in the 13-17 age group.
