SYA "Transition to Tackle" Rugby
SYA is pleased to offer tackle rugby as an option for 5th-6th and 7th-8th graders this Summer. If your child falls outside the grade range, please complete the survey and indicate your child's age/grade in the comments field.

We recognize some parents are a *little* nervous while others are completely comfortable and while others are anxious to get started - let's meet in the middle and not rush things by addressing parental concerns and continue our emphasis on safe play.

Spring "Transition to Tackle" Rugby
This isn't intended to be a full season this Spring, I know many of you are already committed to other sports and we're going to work with your schedules to put this together. To prepare for the season, SYA will hold "Transition to Tackle" practices February through April to safely introduce the game. SYA Rugby is working with SYA Football and partnering with Loudoun, Vienna, Great Falls, and Fairfax youth rugby programs in the area to safely teach proper technique and give kids a chance to decide if they want to play tackle or non-contact tag rugby this summer. Player safety is of paramount importance; we're not going to enter a season of tackle without plenty of practice first.

Player safety is of utmost concern. Practices will be ~2x/month working on the fundamentals and technique while having some fun. We'll coordinate schedules with everyone and kids will be able to come as often as they are able.

SYA Summer Rugby
Welcome to our 5th season of non-contact, coed Tag play and our first to offer tackle rugby. SYA will continue to offer coed Tag through the 6th grade (& grow at this level), but as we have seen the last 2 years, other programs are much smaller than SYA and cannot support both Tag & Tackle so they have moved to tackle. There are 18 rugby programs in Rugby Virginia, 4 field non-contact tag teams in 5-6th grade while 8 offer tackle - so there's plenty of competition there!

For safety's sake, tackle rugby separates boys and girls team. For girls that want to play tackle, Rugby Virginia offers something called "assemblies" where girls from all clubs arrive at a designated game and form teams at the field. As girls rugby isn't as widespread as the boys-side, most programs cannot field a complete team, but nearly all programs have a few girls that want to play. SYA wants to ensure these girls have this opportunity and is partnering with other clubs to make this happen! Please consider yourself welcome to participate and learn about what is in store!
