Rookie Rugby is a NON-CONTACT sport intended for boys and girls grades K-4. This program will teach your children the game of rugby in a positive environment.
Consists of separate U15 (grades 7 and 8) and U13 (grades 4, 5, and 6) squads. Despite grades involved, these separate teams are called "Middle School Rugby" by Rugby Illinois.
Consists of U19 (grades 11 and 12) and U17 (grades 9 and 10) squads. It is not co-ed, but we will combine teams or refer elsewhere for any interested girls. Contact us before registration as we are still re-building our high-school program post COVID.
Access Rugby is a NON-CONTACT program specifically designed for athletes with disabilities, including boys and girls ages 5 - 23. The program involves modified rugby drills and skill-based games mixed with occupational therapy related activities. Learn more about our Access Rugby program. Check back for calendar of next sessions.
