Middle School Girls Rookie Rugby

Reason for cancellation: Postponed due to public safety concerns

The Recreation Division is working with the Massachusetts Youth Rugby Organization to provide an introductory drop-in girls rookie rugby program.

Girls ages 8 - 14 will learn the safe, non-contact flag version of rugby. We will have a variety of women coaches from local colleges and teams to provide skill building drills. The program occurs over three Sundays at the new Carter Playground Bubble, an inflatable dome over one of the athletic fields that allows for year-round sports and recreation. Join us for all or one of the following three dates in March:

  • March 15
  • March 22
  • March 29

Rugby is one of the fastest growing sports in the country. There are girls varsity rugby teams in five Massachusetts high schools and women's rugby teams in colleges across the country. New sport, new experiences and new opportunities.

10:30am - 12:00pm
Repeats weekly on Sunday, starting from February 9, 2020, until March 29, 2020
