GIRLS RUGBY NORTH CAROLINA
Charlotte League 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 leagues based in and around Charlotte. Check out the information below and register today! Questions about the upcoming season? Contact us today and we will be happy to answer your questions!
WHEN ARE THE LEAGUES?
All leagues will run for 7-8 weeks and consist of one day for practice and one day for games each week. Families can expect their children to learn new skills each week that will be applied during game days. The final game day will be a Girls Rugby Family Day which will welcome all family members to get active and celebrate the season with their Girls Rugby Family.
