Contact & Non-Contact Play Levels
Welcome - All Girls/Boys Interested in Rugby
We would like to welcome you to our new spring offering. We strongly feel rugby is a great complementary sport to football, helping in the development of successful football players.
Previous rugby experience is not necessary, we have appropriate placement for all ages, sizes, and experience. Our goal is simple, to teach the great game of rugby in a safe and nurturing environment while creating a love for the sport.
Best of all, our Big Guys have the opportunity to handle and carry the ball.
