Warriors youth rugby
This is non-contact, flag rugby that can be played by boys and girls, ages 15 and under. It is a game that introduces the kids to the sport of rugby, where everyone gets a chance to pass, catch, run and score with the ball. Youth rugby is played with flags to simulate and replace the tackle. Kids will learn about all the unique parts of rugby, like the ‘scrum’ and the ‘line-out’, in a fun, safe and non-contact environment.
No, we are a recreational rugby club. Everyone that practices plays.
Soccer or football cleats are fine. After awhile, you may buy rugby boots if you want.
No problem, we are a recreational club, just come when you can. However, those that attend practices have priority on game day.
No, just come on out and join the fun.
Teammates will run with the ball in their hands, passing the ball among them, looking to run between or around the opposition to score in the try zone. Several skills like running, passing, spacing and decision-making, are the same skills that are used in soccer, football, and basketball.
No. Youth rugby laws are amended to provide a fun and safe opportunity for kids to learn the sport.
No special skills are necessary to begin. If kids can pass, and catch a ball while running, they’ll become a star. Remember, tackling will be replaced with flags. Kids will concentrate on the skills of passing, running, kicking and positional play.
Rugby is excellent preparation for any team sport. The game will get kids in excellent shape. They’ll improve their ability to read defenses. Their passing and footwork will be vastly improved for their other sports.
No! Teamwork is very important and because there are no downs in rugby, the ball keeps moving around the field. Everyone touches the ball! Everyone runs with the ball! Everyone passes the ball! Everyone scores!!!
