ROOKIE RUGBY

Non-Contct Version of the game

Rookie Rugby is typically played in elementary and middle school programs and leagues until players are ready to be introduced to the traditional contact version of the game. It is popular in PE programs and park district programs as an excellent way to teach fitness, teamwork, decision-making, and inclusiveness.

Quad City Rugby is here to support educators, parents, and others looking to introduce rookie rugby programs and start leagues.
