GIRLS RUGBY BELLINGHAM
Bellingham Program Logistics
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 programs and activities based in and around Bellingham. Check out the information below on the closest team/league to you! Don’t see one nearby? Contact us about getting one set up.

Families can expect their children to learn new skills each week that will be applied during game days.
