Great Falls Youth Rugby and McLean Youth Athletics (together a 501(c)3 / non-profit) are continuing to work together to develop the sport of rugby in our areas. Rugby is still pretty much at a grass roots level, with many of our players complete rookies. Our catchment areas also include Reston, Sterling, Herndon, Ashburn, and Arlington.

MYATag (PreK-4th Grade) & Tackle (5th - 12th Grade) players players can join at any time during the year and benefit from our program: rugby is a year-round sport at our club! You only need to pay/register ONCE for the whole year (all 3 sessions: Fall, Spring, Summer, ALL AGES). Scholarships are available, please send us an email explaining why you need assistance.

Also, rugby is free to try! Come to a few practices before committing.

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'.
