February Tackle Clinic

Winter Rugby Clinic #3

Sunday, 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 Field, on your left as you drive in.  Park in the lots behind the school next to the gym and football field.  Enter the athletics area from the Oregon Ave entrance, just in from Military Rd.
Please have your son bring a  mouthpiece, cleats, and a water bottle.  Also, have him bring a friend who needs to try rugby!! Inexperienced players are welcome!  This is a great opportunity to try the sport.
Our spring tackle program is open for all boys in grades 5-8.  We play a spring season in Rugby Virginia entering teams in the Youth Division (5th and 6th grade) and the Middle School Division (7th and 8th grade).  We will play 6-8 regular season matches on Saturdays, culminating in the Virginia State Championship tournament the third weekend in May.  Practices will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Bethesda/Kensington/Forest Glenn area.
In order to attend, your son must be registered with USARugby.
