GIRLS RUGBY ALBANY (OR)

Greater Albany, Oregon – Albany, Independence/Monmouth, and Salem 

Each Girls Rugby program focuses on helping every participant lead and succeed by focusing on teaching positive core values and life skills through non-contact, flag rugby. Flag Rugby is a fun, all-inclusive way to introduce participants to the fundamental skills of rugby with a big emphasis on having fun! No experience is needed to play and all are welcome to come try it out! Flag Rugby substitutes a traditional “tackle” with a flag pull and is perfect for new or experienced players!

Girls Rugby will be offering leagues and camps based in the greater Albany, OR area. Check out the information below on the closest location to you! Don’t see one nearby? Contact us about getting one set up!

ALBANY, OR – MID-WILLAMETTE YMCA CLINICS

Girls Rugby has partnered with the Mid-Willamette YMCA to bring girls flag rugby clinics to Albany, Oregon!  Over the course of the clinics, girls will have the opportunity to become rugby super stars as they work on their passing, catching, running, flag-pulling, and scoring techniques. All of our Girls Rugby Coaches will deliver exciting activities and games, giving each participant a truly memorable experience. In addition to building their rugby skills, campers will also get to experience the values-based curriculum where coaches introduce values and leadership skills through engaging and interactive activities.
