Rugby Ohio Youth Programs

Principles Behind Our Youth Programs
We guide our players to help build confidence on and off the field to not only be great student-athletes but also help them reach their fullest potential. Our game of rugby exhibits the following core values:
  1. Safety is our priority: Everything we say and do revolves around the safety of our players and staff. All coaches are certified through USA Rugby.
  2. Fun: Our programs are all about fun, competitive play where kids are encouraged to make decisions for the team and themselves.
  3. Equal Play Opportunity: All children have equal playing time regardless of skill set.
  4. Sportsmanship: We teach our players at a young age to respect the game and their opponents.
  5. Teamwork: We have more fun when we safely collaborate as one.

Fun for All
Our league structure is designed for boys and girls ages 5 to 14. There are non-contact (flag), modified contact (tackle) and, full contact (tackle) programs available depending on the age group. Crossover age groups may apply. Please contact if you have any questions about which option is best for your child.
