  • How Safe is Rugby at a Young Age?

    Our Minis play a version of rugby which is NON-CONTACT. This would be like hockey at the Tyke or Novice Level.

    Our 12-15 year old introduction to contact players play a version of rugby which is MODIFIED CONTACT. This version focuses on the fundamentals of rugby, catch and pass and tackle. Mostly focusing on learning how to properly tackle. There are rules in place to ensure every tackle is safe and controlled. This would be like a Yellow or Orange Belt in Karate.
