Description: The NSYRFC is introducing a rugby program for boys and girls ages 7 -18.  Rookie Rugby is a non-contact sport designed to introduce children and teens to Rugby Union Football.  Our certified rugby coaches develop basic skills in a fun, encouraging environment.  Similar to flag football, the rules for flag rugby are modified to eliminate contact, and "tackles" occur by pulling one of two velcro tags from a ball carrier's belt.  Players do not play contact rugby (U12 and up) until deemed ready by our coaches.  Everyone is guaranteed playing time and is coached individually in the basic skills of the game, building the confidence necessary to play in this ultimate team game.

In addition to registering through Salem Recreation, all players will need to register with the North Shore Youth Rugby Football Club through USA Rugby/Massachusetts Youth Rugby Organization at:
The cost is $30 for rookie rugby (grades 3-6) and $45 for youth (grades 7 & 8) and high school players.
