ABOUT US

Washington DC Youth Rugby was founded in 2004 with the mission 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.

Our Club is free for all the children. Boys and girls are learning an exciting new sport and having fun. In many cases there are limited organized youth activities available in their communities. Children are developing physical, mental and social health through their participation in our program. We encourage parental involvement and all of our staff and coaches are volunteers.

OUR PROGRAMS

Launched in 2004, our summer touch rugby program continues to be our core program which runs June to August and is open to children age 5 – 14 years old. We welcome all kids and families to join with Warriors rugby team.

Now in its 5th year, Washington DC Youth Rugby supports a tackle program for boys and girls at Bell Multicultural High School in Columbia Heights.

In addition, we have launched a middle school tackle program lead by coach Marcus Wood.  Finally, we are working to getting flag rugby in DC elementary and middle schools as well as recreation centers across the city.

Contact us for more information about any of our programs.
