WE’RE COMING BACK IN 2021!!!
We are excited to announce that after a season off due to COVID, we are going to resume our youth programming this spring!
Each spring, the Clayton Rugby Football Club runs an in-house youth flag rugby program for kids ages 4-12. We are currently the only club that offers flag rugby in the region. All practices and games take place in the same location. The program serves as an excellent introduction and gateway to the sport of rugby.
Our program places a focus on FUNdamentals as opposed to competition. This builds a sound foundation for your child’s future involvement and enjoyment of the sport of rugby.
The Fall 2021 program starts in September and runs every Wednesday night for 6-8 weeks.
Our Little Wombats program is Rugby themed fun for girls and boys in Pre-K thru 2nd Grade. The program is an activity and game based model that gets your child used to movement while also learning about the sport of rugby. Sessions take place once a week for an hour. The program focus is on movement, hand-eye coordination, color recognition, following direction, teamwork concepts, and most of all having FUN! All of which takes place in a rugby setting.
The program serves as an excellent introduction and entry into the sport of rugby.
Our Elementary School program is for girls and boys in 3rd thru 5th grade. It is a Co-Ed Flag rugby program that places a focus on FUNdamentals. Participants will have practice 1-2 times per week for the first few weeks of the program. During that time, they will learn the basics of the sport of rugby and begin building their skill set.
After the first couple of weeks, players are divided into teams. They will play games for the rest of the season. Team sizes are based on the number of participants.
Our Elementary School program is a great entry point into the sport of rugby.
The Clayton RFC and our members are active in the community supporting the growth of rugby. Over the years, we’ve been involved on multiple fronts helping expose area youth to the sport of rugby.
