2021 Youth Season - Spring

Overview: Midstate youth rugby offers a flag rugby program for boys and girls in grades 1-8 (based on the current 2020/21 school year). The program is divided into 3 co-ed teams (u10, u12, u14). No experience is necessary.

u10 Intro (grades 1-4): Perfect for beginners and less advanced players, who will learn the basics of rugby in a fun and instructional environment.

u12 & u14 Competitive (grades 5-8): In order to provide a safe environment for our youth players, we are offering a competitive flag rugby program for more advanced players that delivers a more authentic rugby experience (modified lineouts, scrums, kicking, etc.) with an emphasis on developing skills, promoting teamwork, and having fun while competing, all without contact.

Practices & Games: Practices will begin on Tue April 20, and a full game schedule will begin in mid-May and end in late July. Practices will be held at Highland Elementary School in Cheshire on the following days:

  • Tues 6-8pm (u12 & u14 only - grades 5-8)

  • Wed 6-8pm (u10 & u12 & u14 - grades 1-8)

  • Sun 10am-noon (u10 & u12 & u14 - grades 1-8)

Towns: The program is Open to residents of Cheshire, Southington, Meriden, Wallingford, Woodbridge & all surrounding towns.
