WLNS 217 Rugby
​Section Number 88​
​Credits ​1
​Description
Rugby is one of the most popular team sports in the world, and it is one of the fastest growing team sports in the United States.  A version of rugby played by teams of seven players--Rugby 7s--becomes a permanent addition to the Summer Olympics in 2016.  Rugby is a dynamic, fast-paced running and passing game that blends skill sets from soccer, football, and basketball.  Although rugby normally is a contact sport with tackling, there are versions of the game that do not involve contact at all such as touch rugby and flag rugby.  Non-contact rugby is appropriate for players of all ages and skills, and the running and passing aspects of rugby are excellent ways to engage participants in aerobic exercises involving the use of many different muscle groups. 
 
This class will focus on the basic skills of rugby and participants will learn and practice those skills in a non-contact setting.
