Raleigh Rattlesnakes Youth Rookie Rugby

Raleigh Rookie Rugby - Rattlesnakes
In April 2015, Raleigh Rugby added youth 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’ Rookie Rugby team introduces safe tackling and includes boys and girls from 3rd & 4th-grade. Our rookie tackle team plays against other local Triangle area teams. Minimal equipment is required and fun is expected.
