LIL’ RUGGERS® is what happens.
We know what you’re likely thinking…. “Have you seen a rugby match before?!? There’s absolutely, positively no way I am going to let my precious peanut be exposed to a rough and tumble sport full of physically aggressive hooligans!” To that, we dig deep down into our vocabulary vault and say “Phooey!!!”
Rugby is the perfect sport for any age, gender, size, and speed; with 15 players on each team, there is a position for everyone. Children are notorious for exploring with their hands which makes rugby the ideal sport for kids as they are encouraged to hold the ball and run, run, run!
Through simple drills and flag scrimmages in the great outdoors (where kids belong!), the goal of LIL’ RUGGERS® is to foster listening skills, sharing, communication, and healthy behavior that will ultimately last a lifetime. In a safe, controlled, non-contact and undeniably fun way, of course!
What sets LIL’ RUGGERS® apart from most other youth activities, is the knowledge that at young ages, boys and girls develop mentally and physically at alarmingly different rates. Therefore, LIL’ RUGGERS® offers low child-coach ratios so that each child can learn in a comfortable environment geared exactly for them.
Rugby is one of the most popular sports in the world, it is a game of honor, respect, and unsurpassed sportsmanship. Currently it is spreading across the country like wildfire with youth leagues and high school teams sprouting up everywhere. Start your LIL’ RUGGER today!
