​​About

Rugby is one of the fastest growing team sports in the United States and will be a permanent addition to the summer Olympics in 2016. Rugby is a dynamic fast‐paced running, passing, and tackling game that blends skill sets from soccer, football, and basketball. Noncontact versions of rugby can also be played and are suitable for players of all ages and skills. This class will focus on the basic running, passing and kicking skills of rugby and the participants will learn to organize and practice those skills in a non‐contact setting.

Note:  This course does not lead to a certification by the International Rugby Board or USA Ruby and it does not count for USA Rugby continuing education credits for coaches or referees.
