MORRIS U16-U18 BOYS
Morris Rugby Football Club sponsors a Boys U16/U18 High School rugby program. If you haven’t tried playing rugby yet, now is the time! The program is run as a full contact sports activity with matches scheduled against other local community and single school programs, as part of the NJ State Based Rugby Organization (SBRO). USARFU Certified rugby coaches from the Morris Rugby Club make up the coaching staff.
The program is intended for high school aged students, grades 9-12, 14 to 18 yrs of age. Training sessions are designed to develop the skills necessary to succeed at this exciting sport, focusing on fitness, running, passing and the strategic elements required to ensure a fundamental knowledge of the game. It will also ensure players are properly prepared if they express interest in continuing their rugby playing careers into college and beyond.
The Rugby New Jersey 15's season of league fixtures typically runs from March to end of May. League games are generally played on Sundays. When possible we look to play non-league scrimmages in the fall and also enter 2 or 3 tournaments during the season to introduce players to teams from outside the local area. In addition, two 7’s programs run in tournaments during Summer and early Fall. Practices and training sessions are held in front of Mennen Arena on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 6 to 8 pm. Fall practices begin around mid to late September. Winter indoor training on Sundays in January and February with Spring training commencing in March as the season gets underway.
