Welcome to MARA Rugby

Hello MARA Families,

Tackle rugby registration for boys & girls in 2nd through 8th grades is open now!

Go to this link and choose Matthews from the list of teams when you register.

Rugby is a fast-paced, contact sport where every player plays offense, defense, can pass & carry the ball and can kick.   Everyone is eligible to score. 

No experience is necessary to join the Matthews team – our coaches are experts at taking brand new players and teaching them the game.  

Our season runs from mid-November through the end of February.  Practices are at MARA on Thursday nights from 6-8pm and game days are on Saturdays.  The first practice is Thursday, November 18.

The season costs $175 per player – players will need to purchase their own cleats and mouth guard. 

Rugby is a lot of fun and uses and develops many skills – it is also a continuous game without many stops – so it is also a great way for kids to get some fun fitness in as well!

Email: [email protected] if you have any questions about the program.
