  • SUMMER 2019 TAG REGISTRATION IS OPEN

    Summer TAG rugby 2019 is just around the corner.  Practice starts Thursday, May 23rd.

    We are entering our 15th season of summer youth rugby!  Registration is open!

  • February Clinic – Sunday, Feb 24th!

    WINTER CLINIC #3
    New players and veterans are welcome for our winter clinic on February, 24 from 12:15-2:00 at St. John’s High School in Northwest DC (2607 Military Rd., NW, Washington DC 20015.)  We will be on the front turf field, Quinn.  Enter the athletics area from the Oregon Ave entrance, just in from Military Rd.  Park in the lots behind the school next to the gym and football field.

The Potomac Athletic Club, offers “non-contact” tag rugby for boys and girls ages 5 through 15, and tackle rugby for boys through age 15 (8th grade). Youth “tag” rugby involves running, passing, kicking, offense, defense, scrums, lineouts, mauls, and scoring!  We also support introduction to tackle and development programs for our middle school (5th thru 8th grade) athletes who are interested in exploring the contact game.  This includes a spring tackle season for 5th thru 8th grade boys!  Our program is based in lower Montgomery Country (Silver Spring, MD) though players from any community are welcome.

Players must play both offense and defense because possession can and will change at any time. It brings together skills from lacrosse, soccer, basketball, lacrosse and football and a lot more…all wrapped into one, fast, exciting game.

For tag rugby the club participates in the Rugby Maryland Youth League with other under-9, under-11, under-13, under-15 teams from the Washington metro area.  Co-ed teams are organized to suit the number of youth in the tag program.  Also, we offer an “in-house” u7 program to teach the basics and encourage participation of all ages. The older of these players will sometimes get a chance to play in the under-9 games.  Typically, the under-9 and under-11 will practice together but play as u9 and u11 teams. Similarly the under-13 and under-15 squads train together though play in different age based divisions.  Occasionally players will cross over to a different age group if skill levels and competition is appropriate.
