Now in our SIXTH year, the SYA Youth Rugby Program (with over 100 kids!) offers both non-contact and tackle versions of the sport across three seasons. Our spring season offer both non-contact “Intro to Rugby” and “Intro to Tackle” weekend clinics for interested boys and girls. The competitive summer season provides fast-paced excitement during the summer months as our tackle & tag teams prepare for the Rugby Virginia State Tournament. Our “Fall Fun League” features Sunday-only play as our fall season with a fun end-of-the season tournament.
SYA Youth Rugby proudly serves families in the Centreville, Chantilly, and Clifton.
The two-hand touch variety of the game, called “Tag”, is sevens-style rugby for boys and girls in elementary school. Two-hand touch is a fun and exciting form of non-contact rugby that requires no prior knowledge of the game – just a willingness to learn and have fun! Making its debut in the 2016 Summer Olympics, Rugby Seven’s is a high-scoring game that emphasizes teamwork, communication and mutual support.
Is the next Big Thing already here? In preparation for the 2017-2018 school year, approximately 100 FCPS PE teachers participated in rugby-based training to bring the great sport to their classrooms. The PE teachers, representing elementary, middle, high school and special needs schools across the county, went through a series of fun, rugby-based activities that showed the progression of skills development and gave them an idea of which activities to incorporate in their curriculum.

Brace yourselves, #RugbyIsComing
SYA Welcomes CYA Families: In a bit of a departure from traditional rivalries, SYA and CYA have formed a joint sports venture to enable families in Centreville, Clifton, and Chantilly to participate in the game of rugby. CYA hasn’t had a rugby program in a couple of years yet many kids have expressed an interest in playing. Our family-friendly program works for each community as practices are conveniently located on fields between Centreville & Chantilly. Bonus for families with multiple children: all practices are held at the same time/location.
Be on the leading edge of the fastest-growing team sport in the US over the last five years, try rugby, and bring it back to CYA! #GrowingTheGame
