About the Event
Baton Rouge Area Youth Rugby's announcement of summer flag "Rookie Rugby." It was developed by USA Rugby as a way to introduce rugby to kids in a fun and safe way, while also promoting physical activity and teamwork. This is a great opportunity for children in the area to get involved in a fun and exciting sport while staying active and healthy.
Flag rugby is a great introduction to the sport of rugby, as it allows children to learn the basic skills and rules of the game in a safe and non-contact environment. It's also a great way to stay active and healthy during the summer months, and provides an opportunity for kids to make new friends and build valuable teamwork and communication skills. Rugby has a strong and growing following in the United States, and by introducing children to the sport at a young age, Baton Rouge Area Youth Rugby will be on a strong competitive playing field!
2023 summer coed flag rugby season registration is now open for ages 6-14.
Youth will engage in a fast-paced and empowering game of rugby that will not only develope the skills of running, kicking, passing, and spacial recognition, but youth will be better leaders on and off the field through communication and teamwork.
