Rugby in FCPS Schools

FCPS - PE Teacher Resources

Breaking News! Rugby-based activities and Flag Rugby were removed from the list of prohibited activities and will be used to entertain and educate kids in PE classes this Fall.

In preparation for the 2017-2018 school year, approximately 100 FCPS PE teachers participated in rugby-based training during their in-service 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. Each activity encourages children to develop new abilities (underhand passing, catching, running, evasion, etc) that enhance motor skills. As their exposure and ability so does their confidence level!
