Spring Rugby Clinic

No experience necessary, the clinics are designed to introduce rugby to families unfamiliar with the sport.  The goal of this clinic is quickly get a ball in each child’s hands and running around having fun.  Bring a water bottle, a good attitude, and a sense of humor.

Never played before?  Don’t worry, everyone who wants to play, will play. All players are valued as athletes, and all are encouraged to display their talents and creativity within the context of teamwork. Rugby’s philosophy is to build confidence and independence in all players through physical fitness and improved decision making.
