SYA Rugby – A fun, positive sports experience for boys & girls

Now in our NINTH year, the SYA Youth Rugby Program offers both non-contact and tackle versions of the sport.  The competitive summer season provides fast-paced excitement during the summer months as our tackle & tag teams prepare for the Rugby Virginia State Tournament.  Our “Fall Fun League” features Sunday-only play as our fall season with a fun end-of-the season tournament.

Practices during the summer season:

  • Location: Poplar Tree Park
  • Date/Time: Tuesdays & Thursdays, 6-7:30pm
  • Who’s it for: tag rugby (current grades K-4, rising 1st-5th) and tackle (current grades 5-8, rising 6th-9th)
  • Description: This is for boys and girls alike and we encourage everyone to bring friends to try it out!

SYA and CYA are the only non-profit, youth organization offering rugby to families in Centreville, Chantilly, Clifton, and Fairfax!  Needs-based scholarships are available.  Registration is open for kids in kindergarten through 8th grade (current school year, 2018-2019).

SYA Welcomes CYA Families: In a bit of a departure from traditional rivalries, SYA and CYA have formed a joint sports venture to enable families in Centreville, Clifton, and Chantilly to participate in the game of rugby. CYA hasn’t had a rugby program in a couple of years yet many kids have expressed an interest in playing. Our family-friendly program works for each community as practices are conveniently located on fields between Centreville & Chantilly. Bonus for families with multiple children: all practices are held at the same time/location.

Be on the leading edge of the fastest-growing team sport in the US over the last five years, try rugby, and bring it back to CYA! #GrowingTheGame
