Rookie Rugby 

Rookie Rugby is a non-contact opportunity for young kids to learn to play using flag belts and a smaller field. Kids will try new skills in a fun and safe environment.
    In the actual game of rugby, two teams with 15 players each are required. Teams try to earn points by getting the ball across the opponent’s goal line or kicking it over the crossbar between the goalposts.
    It’s a fast-moving sport with very few stops in the action and continual change of possession, so kids who like to see a lot of action will love it.
    Played on a field called a “pitch” that’s about the size of a soccer field, the only piece of equipment needed is a rugby ball, which looks like a football with rounded ends.
