Kinders & 1st-2nd Grade “Tag”

3rd-4th Grade “Tag”

Co-ed teams are formed for two-hand touch games that introduce the game of rugby using a number of fun, age-appropriate games and activities.  The biggest challenge at these grade group(s) is eye-hand-coordination (catching) and avoiding the “swarm” mentality (you’ll know it when you see it!).

These co-ed, two-hand touch teams start to be more competitive as kids have developed better coordination, body control and the mentality of team-based sports. The biggest challenge at this grade group is spatial awareness (field IQ) and communication (teamwork).  This is where rugby starts to excel in youth development as these are focuses on the game. 

 

SYA has offered non-contact Tag teams at older age groups, please contact us if interested (we are short coaches & players!)

Tackle Rugby

Now in our third year offering tackle rugby, we're excited to continue to grow our program at the 5th-6th and 7th-8th grade levels (current grade).  The focus of early season practices are safely initiating contact, keeping the head protected, and letting players become comfortable to gain the confidence required for playing.  Fall sports benefit tremendously from players that participate each summer.
