Raleigh Rattlesnakes Youth Juniors 12U Rugby

In 2016, Raleigh Rugby Football Club added juniors 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.
