Come out and play the newest Olympic sport!!!
The Morris Rugby Club in conjunction with Sparta Recreation will be offering a youth rugby “pilot program” this summer.  Rugby was reintroduced into the Olympics last summer and the USA Men’s and Women’s team qualified to compete.  What Morris Rugby teaches in an introductory coed, non-contact flag rugby game for children entering grades K—9.  The kids are divided into 4 age groups and the play is exciting and inclusive, as every player runs with the ball and has a chance to score.  Each player will be taught the passing, running, spacing and kicking skills needed as well as the simple rules and terminology.  The six week program starts the week of June 12th and ends with our record setting flag festival on July 22nd.  The children not only do skills and drills but will be coached in scrimmages and can possibly compete against the other 12 town programs in our summer flag league.  Cone out to our free rugby clinic and give it a try!! Presented by: Morris Rugby Club
Program Particulars are listed below: Registration will be done through Morris Rugby.  The link will be provided by May 6th.
