Southwestern Youth Association Sports

Part 3


The focus of tackle rugby clinics will be the emphasis of safely initiating contact and more importantly, become comfortable and gain confidence in playing a tackle sport. Sessions will be offered every other Saturday afternoon and will better prepare players for a competitive summer season of rugby or a fall season of football, assist kids in learning safe techniques, and building confidence.

Looking to gain an edge on the competition during the offseason?  We welcome SYA football and flag-football players and coaches this spring for our first “Intro to Tackle”.  Players from both sports will be instructed on using heads-up, shoulder-leverage tackling techniques.

Format of each practice:

  • Initial 15-30 minutes – Warmups, Fitness, Games-based fitness
  • 15-30 minutes – Basics of the Game (focus on new players), Tackling and Evasion, & more-advanced Skill Sessions
  • final 30-60 minutes – Scrimmage!!!
