GIRLS RUGBY PENNSYLVANIA
Each Girls Rugby program focuses on helping every girl 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 young girls 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 and around Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Check out the information below on the closest team/league to you! Don’t see one nearby? Contact us about getting one set up!
