You only need to pay/register ONCE for the whole year (all 3 sessions: Fall, Spring, Summer, ALL AGES).

AS ALWAYS, ALL PROGRAMS ARE FREE TO TRY.

Rugby Year Time-Line at Great Falls/McLean

The rugby year runs from 1 Sept to 31 August the following year. We play year-round and sessions are divided up as follows:

Why play rugby?

Is rugby for you? YES OF COURSE!
No matter body size, shape, quirks or personality, there is a place for your child on the rugby field. If you want it, you'll achieve it.

Never played before? No problem, whether a younger non-contact player or an older tackle player; the kids are eased into the basics of rugby and safety is key. We ALWAYS have several brand new players and these kids are quickly integrated into the team and are part of the 'gang'.
