The FALL SESSION will start up on Sunday 27 Auguest, 3pm, for all TAG and TACKLE age-groups. Initially this will be a weekly practice, but will increase as we progress into the session. The location will be behind the library, 9830 Georgetown Pike in Great Falls. Our season ends with our annual MedStar Tournament 26 November. After the Christmas break we start up the Spring session early January.

We are still very interested in fielding GIRLS TEAMS this coming year! Grades 5 and up and still, for now, free of charge for girls!

Do you want to COACH or REFEREE?
We always need help with coaching and especially refereeing. We will pay to get you certified. Ref's can be your 12 year old kid if he/she is interested! Please contact me for more information.

A crossover sporting opportunity for all football players during their off-season. See how rugby can benefit ALL SPORTS.

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 Fall session (ALL AGES) runs from the end of August to the end of November, culminating in our own MedStar Benefit Tournament.

The Spring session (ALL AGES) runs from the end of January to May, culminating in a State-wide tournament.

The Summer session (ALL AGES) begins with pre-season clinics in May and continues 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!
