SYA "Transition to Tackle" Rugby
We are excited to offer tackle rugby as an option for 5th-6th and 7th-8th grade boys this Summer and is starting to put together a girls middle school team. If your child falls outside these grade ranges, please complete the survey and indicate your child's age/grade in the comments field.
"Transition to Tackle" Clinics
The planned practices are intended to safely introduce the game and how to safely teach proper technique in the contact game of rugby. This will give kids a chance to decide if they want to play tackle or non-contact tag rugby this summer. Here is our plan:

• SYA will hold “Transition to Tackle” clinics starting May 2nd in preparation for the summer season
• Practices will be Tuesday & Friday, 5:30-7:00 at Popes Head Park (& some weekend activity based on availability)
• SYA will continue to offer 5th-6th co-ed Tag (and will support 7th-8th co-ed Tag as interest grows)

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.

Are you interested in practices this May?
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!
