The Play Rugby Academy is our flagship community program! Boys and girls from age 8 through 18 can join the most diverse rugby club in the country, committed to helping our players become more focused, more confident and more engaged, both on and off the pitch.

The Academy is a place of learning and growing, a diverse and inclusive community where our professional mentors focus on children’s social and emotional development to ensure each student can fulfill their maximum potential. Children will find the level right for them across our flag, introduction to tackle, competitive tackle, and sevens teams.
