Rugby Club Accepting Registration

The Long Island Rugby Club is inviting all athletes entering 8th and 9th grade in Nassau County to register. Rugby is the ancestor of football, and is similar to no-huddle, wishbone gridiron game with all two-way players. Forward passing is not allowed, so the ball must be advanced by hard running and intricate lateral passing. After a tackle, play continues as teams, essentially a compacted line of scrimmage try to drive each other off the ball. The goals of the program are to develop a competitive youth rugby program, through an ethic of hard work and commitment, and cultivate self-confidence in every player. Practices are currently under way. Contact John Royal by email at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
