In 2016, Raleigh Rugby Football Club added 14U 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 encouraged and developed 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. Minimal equipment is required, and fun is expected.
