Welcome to Rugby!

Free pre-season "Open" sessions will be every Saturday @ 10am starting on October 29th and run through the end of January.  These are open to all ages, boys and girls.  These sessions will take place at Liberty Park (1200 Mill Valley Dr, Plano, TX 75075).  As our actual season begins in the Spring, these sessions are a great way to get introduced to the game and meet other players/parents.  Parents are welcome to join in on these sessions where we help teach the basics of the game while also having fun playing Touch Rugby with the kids.  Gym Shorts, Tshirts, rubber studded shoes and a mouth guard are all you need to play.  New players will be assisted by coaches and players for introduction to the rules and basics (passing, tackling etc).  Safe Rugby style tackling techniques will be taught in preparation for our official season starting in the Spring.

Liability waiver is required to be filled out prior to play.
