Rookie Rugby for Schools

Rookie Rugby provides a non-contact introduction to the sport for all ages and genders across the United States. Why is the sport growing so quickly domestically? Students love playing a continuous game where everyone gets to run, pass, catch, and score! The newest Olympic sport is perfect for any school environment, keeping kids active and safe.


Rookie Rugby’s curriculum, The Rookie Rugby Educators Manual, is easy to implement, developmentally appropriate, standards based, and integrated across the curriculum with materials.

Rookie Rugby has been successfully adopted in a variety of educational settings urban and rural; public, private and charter:
Boston, Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Missoula and Tampa are just some of the locations the program has excelled.
