Rugby at the Celtic Festival? YES!
Rugby was born in Rugby, England in 1823 when a young boy picked up the soccer ball for the first time and started running with it. From its humble beginnings it has grown to be an international sport played by millions of men. Women, and youth. Although last in the Olympics in the 1920’s, Rugby returns to the 2016 games! The USA men’s and women’s teams have both qualified to compete in the summer games. Rugby is also the fastest growing team sport amongst men and women in the United States. The first Pro Rugby league launched this year with five teams; three in California, one in Denver, and one in Ohio.
Flagstaff has mens, womens, and high school Rugby programs. The mens team has made the Division III Sweet Sixteen two years in a row and the high school team made the state finals in Division II this year as well as the semi-finals in the Rio Grande Celtic 7’s tournament in Albuquerque on May 21, 2016. Please join us Saturday, July 16, 2016, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for some demonstration Rugby. There will be a youth Rugby clinic beginning at 9:00 a.m. for all kids interested in seeing what Rugby is all about!
