Free Intro-to-Rugby Clinic

A free intro-to-rugby clinic is geared for younger students, for fifth through seventh grade boys and girls. It is being held every Sunday in September and October at Clifton Park, Sea Cliff Avenue, Sea Cliff, NY, 11579 at 10:30 a.m. and runs for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Players should dress in a soccer uniform with cleats or sneakers.  Drills include, passing and catching in motion, punting, and touch rugby. The rugby program is an open invitation for all new players without any prior rugby experience.

Rugby is a spring sport, and played on a football-size field. In rugby all athletes play offense and defense and each player on the field is expected to run like a wide receiver, kick like a punter, tackle like a defensive back, pass like a quarterback and score touchdowns like a running back.
