All boys and girls in grades 5-12 from the IVC district (or from nearby towns in the Peoria area without clubs) are invited to participate.
You must be registered with USA Rugby and Rugby Illinois to engage in contact drills in practice and to play in matches. Registration with USA Rugby and Rugby Illinois is $50 for high school and $40 for middle school, which covers insurance for players and for the club.
Interest in rugby is growing in Chillicothe and throughout central Illinois, and the only thing holding us back is having enough coaches and referees.
If you have rugby experience and would like to give back to the game, please consider coaching and/or becoming a referee.
We currently have a boys high school team (the Barbarians) and a girls high school team (the Cailíní), and starting in 2017 we will have middle school teams for boys and girls in grades 5-8.
We currently have four coaches supporting four teams, but ideally we would have 2-3 dedicated coaches per team -- a head coach and separate coaches for forwards and backs.
Time commitment is two evening practices per week January through May and one game per week through April and May. Benefits are changed lives for the youth in our community.
