BLACK RIVER RENEGADES
CHESTER • RANDOLPH • MENDHAM
Black River Renegades play in the Morris Youth rugby league and invite kids from kindergarten through the 9th grade to join in this exciting and fast moving sport. Running, passing, kicking, teamwork and self confidence are a few of the things you will experience in this fast growing non-contact flag version of one of the most popular sports in the world.
Although only a few years young, the Black River program is quite accomplished. Perhaps the most notable recognition stems from an annual flag rugby festival hosted on the Black River Fields. All the towns from the Morris program, Union, and as far away as Pennsylvania converge in Chester the last Saturday in July to play in a tournament, share their rugby experiences and enjoy the camaraderie associated with the sport. In 2009, this event made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as biggest flag/tag rugby tourney on the planet!
The Renegades have also enjoyed great continuity since 2005, seeing the same leadership and coaches returning year after year. This pays tribute to the truly rewarding experience of being involved with a sport that is low on pressure, yet fast paced and fun. As Black River continues to grow, the team always needs additional volunteers to coach, coordinate, and make the program more exciting. Sign up today and become a part of the tradition that is Black River Rugby.
