The Game:

  • The game is played by 2 teams of 6 players.

  • Points are scored by placing the ball in the end zone. We call this scoring a “Try”.

  • To get the ball to the end zone, you must pass backwards only (sorry aspiring quarterbacks!). The ball is progressed by running it forward.

  • Tackling is very similar to flag football; a defender must “tag” the offense. In the event of a tackle, the defense must back up 5m from the ball while the offence places the ball on the ground and a teammate picks it up to continue play. If the defense does not back up the full 5m before the next tag, a penalty will be called. On the 6th tag, possession is turned over to the defense.

  • Dropping the ball, accidentally passing forward or any other infringement of the rules results in a change of possession.

  • Games are 45 minutes long; 20 minute halves and 5 minute half time.

  • The league is a round robin style with matches every Wednesday. Teams can expect to play every Wednesday of the season. There will be at least 2 games played per week.

  • Team with the most points at the end of the season, wins.

  • Team check in is at 15 minutes prior to kickoff. Youth league kickoff at 5:30p followed by adult league at 6:15pm and 7:00pm.

  • Teams must have enough players to put a team of 6 on the field.

The Teams:

  • Teams must consist of between 6 and 12 players. You must have a minimum of 2 females on a team.

  • Youth teams will be split up at the beginning of each match.

  • Each team must have 6 players on the field at a time, 1 of which must be a lady.

  • The league will provide uniforms for all players and each team captain will receive a touch rugby ball.

Fee Includes:

  • 6 regular season games

  • Team t-shirts

  • Facility rental, field markings, and equipment

  • 1 referee/monitor per game

  • League administration and customer service

  • Prizes for league champions
