FLAG RUGBY

DC FLAG RUGBY

flag-9Washington DC Youth Rugby has partnered with Play Rugby USA to bring rugby to DC elementary, middle schools and recreation centers. We are very pleased that so many schools have joined in this endeavour with us to introduce America’s fastest growing sport to DC children.

The spring 2017 elementary and middle school tournament was held on May 20th at Houston Elementary School (1100 50th Pl. NE, Washington, DC 20019).  A great day of rugby took place.

Our next training will take place in September 2017 when we partner with Play Rugby USA to teach a training session to staff/volunteers. Play Rugby USA not only teaches the basics of flag rugby to new people, but also how the skills and values inherent in rugby translate to everyday life. Many thanks to the kind donation from the David and Betsy Lewis Foundation which funds the training class.
