RUGBY

Spring Schedule

SYA is excited to announce a series of Tag & Tackle clinics this spring.   Sessions will be held roughly every other weekend, scheduled in such a way that kids can play their primary sport yet 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 returning players a head start on summer play.  No experience required!

TAG CLINICS:

We’ll follow the same successful model used in the fall.  Sessions will be held every other Sunday afternoon for elementary-aged boys and girls, players will be divided by grade groups.  As some FCPS schools have started rugby in PE, there’s a lot of interest from new players anxious to play.

  • 15-30 minutes – Basics of the Game (focus on new players)
  • 15-30 minutes – More-advanced Skill Sessions
  • final 60 minutes – Scrimmage!!!

TACKLE CLINICS: 

The focus of tackle rugby clinics will be the emphasis of safely initiating contact and more importantly, become comfortable and gain confidence in playing a tackle sport. Sessions will be offered every other Saturday afternoon and will better prepare players for a competitive summer season of rugby or a fall season of football, assist kids in learning safe techniques, and building confidence.

Looking to gain an edge on the competition during the offseason?  We welcome SYA football and flag-football players and coaches this spring for our first “Intro to Tackle”.  Players from both sports will be instructed on using heads-up, shoulder-leverage tackling techniques.

Format of each practice:

  • Initial 15-30 minutes – Warmups, Fitness, Games-based fitness
  • 15-30 minutes – Basics of the Game (focus on new players), Tackling and Evasion, & more-advanced Skill Sessions
  • final 30-60 minutes – Scrimmage!!!
