Middle School U15 Girls

Our U15 girls team is comprised of 7th and 8th graders that are 15 yrs or younger on or before June, 30th 2021.

At this level, they are introduced to and instructed in the fundamentals of rugby and in addition players are introduced to a higher level of play with increased focus on mode and style of play while continuing to improve basic skills.

This level is full-contact rugby taking place in a very controlled and safe environment.
