Spring Registration is now open!

SYA is excited to announce both Tag & Tackle rugby clinics this spring.  A series of weekend-only sessions will be held March through May.  Kids will enjoy spring rugby clinics as a “plus one” sport so they can play their primary SYA sport yet still come out and play rugby.  The purpose of the Spring clinics are two-fold: (1) introduce the game to new players without significant time or cost commitment and (2) provide kids a head-start on summer play.  No experience required!

Rhino Tackle Rings have arrived!!!

The video shown is an early draft of just some kids getting together to run some evasion drills.  We’re going to put out a series of short videos to help promote the sport.  Beyond that, we intend to use these videos emphasize how SYA is making safety a central part of our training, instructing players on the fundamentals of safe tackling techniques and show how much fun it can be in the process.  

Thank you Tom Healy for his personal contribution!  A long-time supporter of youth sports and former SYA Football Commissioner, we couldn’t have purchased these without his help!  We’ll be sharing these with SYA Football in the offseason to let those players enjoy the benefit.
