Welcome to Rookie Rugby!
Thank you for your interest in Rugby NY’s Rookie Rugby programs. Rookie Rugby is a non-contact version of the game designed to introduce boys and girls to the sport of rugby. Easy to learn, easy to teach, Rookie Rugby focuses on basic skills, fitness and most importantly, FUN!
We Need Your Help
Rugby NY is aiming to organize Rookie Rugby programs in areas of the state where rugby programs for high school and younger children do not currently exist.
We need teachers, coaches and rugby enthusiasts across the state who would like to help our sport grow. We are currently seeking to arrange events in the following areas:
- Greene / Ulster / Delaware Counties
- North Country / Adirondacks
- Utica / Rome
We will need venues such as school playing fields for Rookie Rugby events and local help publicizing and promoting them. If you think you can help, please email any of the following individuals:
