Community Rugby Programs

The greatest thing about Rookie Rugby is that it fits into any program format. Decide which format works best for your organization:

  • Multi-Sport Option – Rookie Rugby fits in as a great option for a multi-sports camp. The curriculum can be adapted to fit into a few hours, one day, or even a week!
  • One Day Clinic/Camp – Once your members experience a taste, they will want more rugby! Provide a full day of games and competition in a clinic or camp format.
  • Multi-Day Camp – Playing rugby over a few days will allow participants to further develop their skills and experience proper game-play. Use the current curriculum or pick and choose the games that fit your needs!
  • League – Flag rugby leagues are a ton of fun and can be played over a number of weeks.

Connect with Rugby Clubs

Rugby clubs have been partnering with community organizations all over the country to help provide materials, equipment, and volunteers to help run Rookie Rugby programming. Many community programs serve as feeder programs into rugby clubs and existing leagues. Contact your local Provincial Sport Organization (PSO) to get in touch with a local club that can work with your organization.
