Raleigh Rattlesnakes Middle School Rugby

Raleigh Middle School Rugby - Rattlesnakes

In 2016, Raleigh Rugby Football Club added middle school rugby. It’s a safe, fun, easy way for kids to learn and fall in love with the newest Olympic sport. While playing at our gorgeous, Bermuda grass facilities, your kids are encouraged to have fun while being groomed into being the best rugby players they can be. Our youth tackle rugby teams prepare your kids for the next level. Give your kids the opportunity to move up through the teams in our organization, and be a part of the fastest growing sport in the US.

The Rattlesnakes’ Middle School Rugby team include boys and girls from 5th and 6th grade and plays other, triangle teams. Girls in these grades may also play down a league and join the Junior team, if preferred. Minimal equipment is required and fun is expected.
