Washington DC Youth Rugby was founded in 2004 with the goal to reach out to under-served children in Washington DC to promote health and physical fitness and to teach valuable life skills through the sport of rugby.
The summer program accepts boys AND girls from five to 14 years old regardless of athletic ability. Washington DC Youth Rugby also funds Bell Multi-Cultural High School boys and girls rugby program located in Columbia Heights.
All of our programs are free to kids and we highly encourage parents to participate and volunteer if possible.
BOYS HIGH SCHOOL RUGBY CAMP
The Bell Multicultural High School Rugby Team (Griffins Rugby Football Club) is participating in a High School Rugby Camp February 13th – 15th.
A premier rugby team from England (the Leicester Tigers) and University of Mary Washington are running the camp. The camp will be held on the University of Mary Washington campus in Fredericksburg, VA (55 miles south of Washington, DC off of I-95).
Bell will be one of 16 high schools from the area attending. This is an excellent opportunity for new and returning high school rugby players to prepare for the rugby spring season as well as visit a top-notch liberal arts university in the area.
The team will be leaving (after school) on Friday, February 13th and returning on Sunday, February 15th (in the evening). Coaches will be chaperoning the trip. The Washington DC Youth Rugby is covering the registration fees, transportation, lunches and hotel).
Parents: The required paperwork is below and must be printed and returned to Coach Hensley.
It is different, it is unique, and it is rugby. More than a game, more than simple competition…
