Arlington Youth Rugby provides both boys and girls in grades 7 and 8 a fun and safe opportunity to learn tackle rugby. Our USA Rugby certified coaches safely manage the transition from non-contact to contact rugby. Safety is paramount and participants are taught the fundamentals of tackle rugby using tackle pads or donuts, before progressing onto tackle drills with teammates and eventually into competitive games, only as they are ready. Participants learn the importance of teamwork and respect for opponents, coaches and referees. No previous experience is required.
