What is Olympic Rugby?

Olympic Rugby is the 7-on-7 version of rugby that was played during the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro this summer. This form of rugby is also referred to as Rugby Sevens (or 7's). Kids will learn teamwork, develop discipline, utilize communication skills and become mentally tough in a great team sport for all sizes. Regardless of your child's age and size there is a position for all in rugby, and all positions get a chance to carry the ball, play defense and score.

*Rookie Rugby players will play 4-on-4 rugby
