Tri-Town Mountaineers 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.

TEAM HISTORY

The idea of starting a youth rugby program in Morris County first struck Tom Feury at the 1998 Can-Am Rugby tournament in Saranac Lake. It was here that his oldest child Blaze, then 6, participated in a youth rugby clinic organized by Pat Walsh who was then the pioneer of touch rugby in the Baltimore area.

Tom spent the next several months securing the permission to run a summer youth rugby program in his hometown of Denville NJ. It was an uphill battle gaining access to fields and becoming an accepted town recreation program, but the battle was won and plans were put in place to start the first Morris Youth Rugby Program in Denville in the summer of 1999.

The first priority was to recruit enough children to make the program feasible. Luckily, the Feury's had met several other Denville families through their kids other athletic pursuits and convinced several to sign on. It was also key that several other Morris ruggers lived in town including Gerry Francisco, Rick Merrill, and William Dobbs, all of which contributed kids, coaching skills, or both. The final and most important recruitment tool was getting an application and flyer sent home to all the elementary school kids in town. In the end, 28 applications were received.

Since that first summer, eight additional youth rugby programs have been started in Morris County in much the same way as the Denville Dawgs. The Black River Renegades, the Bruins, the Long Valley Wolfpack, the Montville Wanderers, the Morristown Colonials, the Mine Hill Tigers and the Parsippany Panthers all now participate in the Morris County Summer Youth Rugby Program.

In 2010 the Tri-Town Mountaineers take to the field for the first time under the direction of Kelly Miniter and Jeff Gresack. The Tri-Town Mountaineers encompass the towns of Mountain Lakes, Boonton and Boonton Township. Look for great things from the Mountaineers.
