REGISTRATION DETAILS BELOW FYI:

This registration page gives you a one-page overview of our programs and the registration process & details. We look forward to seeing you on the pitch!

Fall Rugby Session:

Fall is a fairly new developpment in Virginia, and not all clubs are active. We like to give our kids the opportunity to play year-round. We will practice, scrimmage, do rugby festivals and play as much as we can. The more kids we get, the better off we will be.
Fall culminates with the Great Falls/Medstar Hospital benefit rugby tournament. Youth teams from Maryland, DC and Virginia play rugby on 3 fields at the same time in the center of Great Falls!

Upon registration, all members will automatically receive two forms of insurance: liability insurance and accident insurance. You are fully covered.

Register early and bring siblings and friends! Contact me if you gave any questions or concerns.
