Rugby Virginia Summer League

Player Fees
Regular 100.0

Dates: Training will start May 30 and be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.  Matches will likely start June 10 and continue through June and July with the final end of season tournament on the weekend of July 22 & 23.

We recognize that the summer is the time when families take vacations and players might not be available for all matches.  We do require new players (those who have not played tackle rugby for us before) to attend four training sessions before participating in a match for safety reasons.  Apart from that players will not be penalized for missing trainings or matches due to family vacations or summer camps.

Teams: We are able to form boys tackle teams at three levels: 7th/8th Grade, 5th/6th Grade, and 3rd/4th Grade.  Youth tackle rugby is gender specific at the 7/8 & 5/6 levels. 3/4 Tackle is coed. 7/8s and 5/6s play 11's in the summer (11 players per side on full size field), 3/4s play on small field with 7 per side. The teams we actually form will be the result of players who register.

Girls:  Until such time as we have sufficient number to form our own girls teams we will refer any 5th/6th or 7th/8th grade girls to the Fort Hunt Rugby club girls program at these levels.  Rugby Virginia schedules regular girls "assemblies" to allow the few girls at each club that are learning the game to come together and form teams for matches. Contact Ft Hunt coach Kat Aversano for info about their program:

Registration Fees: $100 per new player (no cost for 2017 spring tackle players who are re-upping for summer session). Multi-player families are also eligible for our $10 family discount for each subsequent player registered after the first. Use discount code "Tackle Family Discount" when making payment. Financial aid is available, please send email to for details.

Age: Player eligibility for the summer season is governed by a player's grade as of May 1 of the current year. Tackle is open to players in grades 3 through 8.  8th graders as of May 1 are considered 8th graders through the summer season and play middle school rugby. They are not permitted to play on high school teams until they begin 9th grade with the start of the new school year in the fall.

Equipment: All players will receive a training uniform consisting of jeresy, shorts and socks.  All players must wear appropriate athletic footwear and must provide their own mouth guard. 

Safety: The coaches and administrators of Alexandria Rugby recognize that rugby is a potenially dangerous sport.  All tackle coaches have received training and certification in coaching and in concussion awareness and prevention.  All players are required to use a mouthguard at all trainings and matches.

Location: All trainings and home matches will take place at GW Middle School, 1005 Mt Vernon Ave, Alexandria VA 22301.  We will participate in the Rugby Virginia youth summer league.  Away matches to occur throughout the state.
