REGISTRATION DETAILS BELOW FYI:

This registration page gives you a one-page overview of our programs and the registration process & details. We look forward to seeing you on the pitch!

Fall Rugby Session:

Fall is a fairly new developpment in Virginia, and not all clubs are active. We like to give our kids the opportunity to play year-round. We will practice, scrimmage, do rugby festivals and play as much as we can. The more kids we get, the better off we will be. We are confident of being able to offer weekly festivals and matches.
Fall culminates with the Great Falls/Medstar Hospital benefit rugby tournament. Youth teams from Maryland, DC and Virginia play rugby on 3 fields at the same time in the center of Great Falls! This is OUR EVENT, and we put everything in to it to make it succesful. Most of the proceeds go to the MedStar National Hospital Rehab program.

Upon registration, all members will automatically receive two forms of insurance: liability insurance and accident insurance. You are fully covered.

Register early and bring siblings and friends! Contact me if you gave any questions or concerns.
