Our Coed Youth Rugby Team is open to all 5th and 6th graders (under 12 as of 9/1/16) We participate in an independent contact league playing teams throughout New England and in the Rookie Rugby Flag 7s Division of the Massachusetts Youth Rugby Organization (MYRO). We do not make cuts. All player levels are welcome. Practices will begin in early April and the spring season will end in late June.
This year’s squad will be comprised of a solid core group of established players as well as many new-to-rugby players from cities and towns throughout Essex County and Southern New Hampshire. This season the squad has a busy schedule against some very tough competition including clubs from MA, CT and NYC.
Our first match will be about 4 weeks after our first practice to give our coaches time to teach both tacklers and ball carriers how to tackle and be tackled safely. Both coaches and referees emphasize safe play during all practices and games.
