Rookie Rugby in West Roxbury

The Parks and Recreation Department, working with the Massachusetts Youth Rugby Organization, is offering a Rookie Rugby Program.

Players will learn the safe, non-contact, flag version of rugby, the fastest growing youth team sport in US and a recognized varsity sport in Massachusetts high schools this spring. They will be taught the basics of the game in a safe, active and supportive environment. Skills that they will learn include:

  • ball handling
  • running with the ball
  • catching and passing
  • teamwork, and
  • sportsmanship.
