Come out to support your Orca family and watch some great rugby.
Orca has teams for kids from age 8 through high school. Players are divided into Under-18 (U18) Boys, U18 Girls, U16 Boys, U14 Boys, U12 coed and U10 coed teams.
Age eligibility is determined by the athlete's age on the previous August 31st. For example, for the 2016 season, an athlete must have been 11 or younger on August 31, 2015, to play for the U12 team.
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, and as rugby returns to the Summer Olympics in Rio 2016 with USA having a Gold Medal to defend, the doors are open for players who start now!
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!
