Great Falls Youth Rugby can now provide your child with a fun and challenging weeklong camp. The Campers will be provided with a unique training experience that is demanding and effective.

Our Rugby Camps cater to kids in the 5-14 ** year old range. These camps are NON-CONTACT.** The Campers practice and play a form of touch rugby (2-hand touch around the waist). It is a fun, safe team game that develops a range of ball handling, running and evasion skills. Most importantly, the participants learn the core values of rugby (and life!): the importance of teamwork, respect for opponents, referees and coaches, discipline, integrity; which is generated through honesty and fair play. And the camaraderie! The kids learn to work together in close-knit situations, and friendships are bonded in no time!

Our coaches: all our coaches hold USA Rugby certification and have played rugby at college and/or club level, some in so-called 'tier-one' rugby-playing countries. All are excited to pass on thier experience to your children.
COED, AGES 5-14**
** We are flexible. If you have kids transitioning from tag to tackle, or if some skills need reinforcement; we will arrange TACKLE/CONTACT clinics (rucks/mauls etc) and/or one-on-one training. Send over an email if you are interested.
