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.

The summer program accepts boys AND girls from five to 14 years old regardless of athletic ability. Washington DC Youth Rugby also supports 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.


Feb 8 – Training is underway for the High School Bell Griffins boys and girls rugby program.  We are excited about participating in the upcoming rugby camp at Penn State University and the spring season.

Feb 6 – Thank you to everyone who participated in our second Flag Rugby Coaches Training session. We are very pleased that you have joined this endeavor with us to introduce America’s fastest growing sport to DC schools. We partnered with Play Rugby USA to teach the session and their instructors did an exceptional job.  Play Rugby USA not only teachs the basics of flag rugby to new people, but also how the skills and values inherent in rugby translate to everyday life.

Stay tuned for the tournament date in May.
