Rugby is a dynamic, fast-paced game that can be played by people of all ages, level of ability, body shape and size. 

Rugby is a great sport to start at a young age as it teaches balance, mobility, agility and coordination which are key to athletic development in any sport. 

At the Clan, we have a position for everyBODY. That’s right, everybody! 
Rugby needs players that are smart, fast, big, strong, small, tall, and everything in between. Rugby is a game that focuses on the strengths of the players and needs different strengths for different positions. 

Rugby at an early age teaches kids about respect, discipline and resilience which contributes to their development as respectful and strong individuals in life.

Rugby is a sport that champions longevity in the game. From playing, to coaching, as well as volunteering at events or being a referee, there is an opportunity for everyone to get involved!

Contact is introduced very slowly in rugby and doesn’t start until the age of 11.

Ages 5 – 9 play flag rugby which is similar to flag football where there is no tackling or contact allowed. 

From 11 to 15 years old, contact and tackling is modified to make it safe and controlled for juniors. After 16 year old rugby is full contact for boys and girls. 

Rugby is an empowering sport that exemplifies equality on and off the field as all the rules and equipment are the same for men and women. 

Playing Rugby focuses on Teamwork, Discipline, Respect, Fun, and Improvement - all aspects of well-being that contribute to a healthy and vibrant lifestyle.
