RUGBY

Who Plays Rugby?

Boys and girls aged 5-13 play non-contact rugby in SYA


 

Youth touch rugby in all age groups is a co-ed sport. Boys and girls play together on the same team. In fact, a unique aspect of rugby, just as with any senior rugby club, is that the entire group of boys and girls, coaches, and parents is treated as a single team rather than separate and unrelated groups according to age, etc.  We’ll train together, play together, cheer each other on, and support each other.
So just who plays rugby?  Let’s find out!


Never played before?  Don’t worry, NONE of the players on the team last year had played before (much less know any of the rules!)  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.
