The event is a youth tournament, for all age groups U7 through High School. A number of D.C., Maryland and Virginia Youth, Middle School and High School teams are already registered. The fun begins at 9 a.m. and will run all day. The Middle School and High School tackle teams (Boys and Girls) will play at both Leo Santabella Park (behind library) and the Grange. Youth “tag” rugby matches will be played behind the post-office.
Great Falls/McLean Youth Rugby is grateful for the continued support of the community, including sponsors Cuisine Solutions, Indigo IT, Nandos PERi-PERi Chicken and Kiwi Kuisine Pies. A portion of the proceeds from all participating teams and vendors will be donated to MedStar’s Adaptive Sports Program. We invite you to come visit, watch some rugby, and grab a bite to eat
Great Falls/McLean Rugby, founded in 2011, is a 501c3 non-profit organization and has seen registrations increase after the COVID lull. Registration and playing opportunities exist year-round and the Eagles are always looking for opportunities to promote the club throughout the Herndon, Great Falls, Reston, McLean and Sterling areas.
The rugby year is just starting (October 2021-September 2022), so there are plenty of opportunities to benefit from our rugby program and your one-time registration is good for the full year. We are all starting to look out for Spring Sports: rugby is your answer! Football player? “Many families are looking for a safer alternative to American football, while others are realizing how well the sports complement one another. Rugby-style tackling is taking hold in both college and profession football.”For more information, visit www.greatfallsrugby.com or email Gary Coetzee at firstname.lastname@example.org The club is also on Facebook.
