Youth Rugby

Youth Rugby

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 rugby as well as youth rugby camp. No experience required to join any of our programs. Learn from our instructors that have national and collegiate experience. 

Non-Contact

Non-contact youth rugby is all about teaching boys and girls ages 6-9 years old the fundamentals of rugby! 

Contact

Contact youth rugby 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. This program is open to kids 10-13 years old.
