At Orca Youth Rugby everyone is welcome. Designed to develop both beginners and experienced players of all skill levels, we train boys and girls ages 8 to 18 (high school) to play one of the most challenging and enjoyable sports in the world: RUGBY! Rugby has a place for all body types: small and fast, big and strong, tall or short. Although rugby is wildly popular around the world, relatively few people in the U.S. are familiar with rugby, so we start from the beginning so everyone can learn. Even though it looks like chaos to begin with, after a few weeks of practice and a game or two, even beginners “get it” and have a lot of fun!
Many Orcas have gone on to play regional and state all-star teams, which tour to the likes of Oregon, Miami, or New York, and have played in college, whether they started playing rugby as child or in senior year of high school. Some girls have even been selected to participate in USA National camps! We aim to give players the tools to advance to the next level, should they choose. The US has embraced competing for Gold as was the case in last summers Olympics in Rio 2016. The doors are open for players to develop skills to help them pursue international and national competition!
Orca Rugby is designed for beginners and everyone plays. Orca Rugby does not “cut” or drop players from the team, except for bad behavior. All we require is your good attitude and effort!
