Great Falls Youth Rugby Club is a 501(c)3 non-profit youth co-ed rugby club that plays in the fall, spring and summer months with close to 30 other clubs in the Rugby Virginia league.

The Spring session (for BOYS - U13, U15, U17, U19) runs from the end of January to May,culminating in a State-wide tournament.

The Summer session (for COED - U7, U9, U11, BOYS - U13, U15, U17, U19) begins with pre-season clinics in May and continue to an all-team tournament during the last weekend of July.

Great Falls Rugby was created to fulfill a void in the Great Falls/Reston/Herndon/Sterling/McLean area for youth rugby.

Rugby is fast, fun and safe and as the newest Olympic sport it is catching on with kids across the country who can now see games on television and want to get their hands on a ball.
Rugby is fun! Give it a try!
