YOUTH

Spring 2020 Registration is Open

Season runs from late March to the end of May

The Clayton Rugby Football Club runs an in-house youth flag rugby program for kids ages 4-14 each Spring. 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. Programs place a focus on FUNdamentals.

UPDATE: Due to the current playing ban from USA Rugby, due to the COVID-19 scare, the start date for our youth program has been pushed back to April 18th. We will have an update in a couple of weeks.
