RIDGE FLAG RUGBY
The Ridge Flag Rugby team will play in the Morris Youth rugby league and invites boys and girls throughout the Somerset Hills in kindergarten through the 9th grade to join in this fun and fast- moving sport. The children will be divided into age-based groups and will learn and participate in a non-contact version of the most popular sport in the world.
The Ridge Flag Rugby league joined the Morris Rugby Flag League in 2016 . We have had great feedback from parents and kids with 40+ flag players participating across all age groups. We are also very fortunate to have several parent coaches with great rugby experience.
The creation of the League stemmed from the enthusiasm of the Ridge Rugby Club which kicked off in the Fall of 2015. The Ridge Rugby has a team for high-school age boys and this Spring there will be a High School girls team. Ridge Rugby is a member of USA Rugby (www.usarugby.org (link is external)) and New Jersey Rugby (www.rugbynewjersey.com (link is external)), one of USA Rugby’s State-Based Rugby Organizations for youth development.
2019 Season Overview
6 week season beginning June 11th and running through July 20th.
Practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays 6-7:30 at the Ridge Rugby Club fields in Basking Ridge (VA fields).
Coaches are parent volunteers and they are assisted by high school players from Ridge Rugby Club. Our high school players were surprised by how much fun they had coaching the younger teams and the flag players really liked having younger coaches help out. We emphasize rugby fundamentals and having fun.
Games are played tournament-style on Saturdays. Teams play several short games which provides a lot of action and many touches on the ball. Saturday game days usually run from 9-12.
We know that many families have vacations and other commitments during this time. It is not a problem if your child will miss a weekend or a practice or even start the season late, just be sure to update TeamSnap with their availability.
The flag league looks to provide a foundation of knowledge and generate enthusiasm and passion for the sport of rugby. Sign up today and Give Rugby a try!!
