  • Touch rugby? What's the point?

  • Rugby is a game of continuous movement, similar to soccer and basketball.
    The point is to keep the ball alive, advancing it forward by passing and running to score. Touch rugby preserves this flow, and lets boys and girls, and players of a wide age range and skill level, to play together in a safe environment.
