Perrysburg Youth Rugby

Principles Behind The Game

Perrysburg Youth Rugby offers programs for 5th through 8th Grade students.  Players come together for academy-style training and are divided up into teams for games.

  • This is a recreational league for the community!  All kids will play.
  • Safety above all else.  This is the thread woven through the fabric of everything we do.
    • Step by step learning full 7s rugby (Olympic game)
    • Begin with flag/two-hand touch and slowly progress to full contact
    • Line outs, scrumming, rucking are introduced progressively as players are ready
    • Coaches are certified through USA Rugby
  • Sportsmanship
    • Respect all players in action and word
    • Do not speak negatively to each other
    • Do not hurt each other
    • What is REAL winning?
  • Teamwork.  Rugby is unique as play develops on the field and is controlled by the players

The season begins at the end of March and runs through mid-May.
