Youth Rugby

Youth Rugby (6)

Youth Rugby is back, brought to you by the City of Edwardsville Parks and Recreation Department and Metro East Rugby Club! Now offering both contact and non-contact sessions during Fall and Spring. We have instructors that have national and collegiate experience.


This non-contact program is all about teaching boys and girls 6-10 years old the fundamentals of rugby! 


This contact program is for boys and girls ages 10-13 years old. 

This program will include contact drills and a few scrimmages.  They will predominantly be making contact with tackle pads and low-speed contact with other participants.  This season is designed to teach rugby contact fundamentals by USA Rugby LEVEL 200 coaches and safety is our number one priority.  Due to contact being involved a mouth guard is mandatory, cleats are optional.  

All sessions will be held at Plummer Family Park - Grass fields.

Program will go from September 10, 2023 to October 29, 2023 (7 week long program).

Every Sunday from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Registration closes September 3.
