Our Island Rugby Football Club is now inviting all young men and young ladies age 13-18 living in or near Rhode Island to "TRY" the fast paced, exciting sport of Rugby!!!

"We have the BEST fields to run on in all of USA ... "TRY" Rugby Today!" Volunteer assistants are needed 4-6 hrs per week to accommodate more age groups, and girl's programs in the future. Please contact us if you are interested and available. Thank you!

Rugby is a sport for children of all shapes and sizes. We teach kids the proper techniques and body positions to help promote safety in the contact areas. Rugby is all inclusive and everyone is encouraged to run with the ball.  Participants also learn teamwork and one on one defense when the opposition has the ball. Rugby instills skills, discipline, fitness, respect for others, camaraderie and sportsmanship. All while the kids are running, thinking, kicking, yelling and having fun. "Just pick it up and run with it," Island Rugby.
