MORRIS YOUTH FLAG RUGBY

Why is youth rugby growing so fast? Because it’s a ton of FUN to play! Everyone touches the ball and everyone can score. You can pick the ball up, pass it, kick it, and run with it. Youth Rugby is a fast paced, safe, and fun way to improve in any athletic skill.

The program is intended for kids entering first through ninth grade. It is a coed, non-contact "touch" form of rugby using flags. Skills including running, kicking, passing, space strategy, teamwork, and self-confidence will be developed.

The Morris Youth League includes nine towns in Morris County, NJ, and last year also extended its reach outside of Morris to include youth programs in Ridgewood and Jersey City. An administrative and coaching staff of over 200 volunteers oversees weekly mini tournaments during June and July and hosts an end of season festival. Our 2009 Youth Festival is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest Mini/Flag Rugby Tournament in the world. It included all of the Morris Youth League teams, as well as teams from Union County NJ, New York and Pennsylvania.
