Rattlesnakes Youth Touch Rugby (U8-U10)

Rattlesnakes U8In April 2015, Raleigh Rugby added youth touch rugby to our family. 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. 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’ youth touch rugby teams typically include kids from kindergarten through 4th-grade, but welcome mature kids of younger ages. Our U8 and U10 programs play against other local Triangle area teams. Minimal equipment is required and fun is expected.
