Rookie Rugby

Head Coach: Nicole Brockett

Rookie Rugby is a non-contact version of rugby for boys and girls ages 8-10 until they are ready and eligible for traditional contact rugby. The middle school rugby festivals in Illinois feature rookie rugby, open to any registered players. This presents a perfect opportunity for siblings of middle school players to learn and play the same sport their older brother or sister is playing. Not only siblings, but any child age 7-10 is welcome.

Cost to register is only $50 per year ($5 to register and $45 for dues). Each dues-paying player receives a t-shirt and rugby ball to keep.
