Registration open for Panthers Youth Rugby

Special to the Reporter

If you are a teenager looking for a fun new sport or a parent looking for an outdoor sport for your young energetic child, give rugby a try.

Rugby is a fun and high-intensity game for players of all ages. It’s played in a touch format (like flag football) up to age 10, and as a contact sport for ages 10 and above, with adjusted safety contact rules for each age group.

Panthers Youth Rugby is currently on-boarding new players and our practices have been adapted to conform and comply with COVID-19 regulations and social distancing.

February practices take place at 5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays and 10 a.m. on Saturdays at Grass Lawn Park in Redmond, on Softball Field #1. Since there are not any “walk-ins” this season due to COVID-19, Panthers Youth Rugby waived the club’s fees for the whole month of February to allow all boys and girls ages 7-18 to play.
