Spring 2017 Touch & Tackle Info

Touch Teams – All Youth Ages

Touch Tuesdays  – 5:30 – 7:00 pm

Tuesday practices this spring will be touch with a similar format as in the past. Come a few minutes early and pass the ball around with friends. Practice starts with a fun warm up game, then moves on to more specific drills.

Depending on the age and skill level of the players, we typically split into two groups roughly under 10 years old breaking out and doing some fun games of their on.

We try to spend the second half of practice running touch games and finally wrapping up with some good old fashion running.

All ages and experience levels are welcomed to come out and give it a try… and remember, everyone that has ever played rugby had a first practice too!

U10 & U12 Tackle Teams

Winter Tackle Clinics –  12/18, 1/22, 2/28 – 1:00-5:00 pm –  $25/clinic/player

These clinics will be focusing on proper techniques for tackler and tacklee as well as rules of the game, conditioning and some touch games. We will not be engaging live/full speed contact but will be utilizing tackle bags, rucking shields and controlled engagement. PLEASE RSVP IF YOU PLAN ON ATTENDING. caryrugby@gmail.com

The clinics are aimed to prepare our kids that may be ready to play tackle in the Spring. All kids are welcome to attend regardless if they intend to play touch only in the spring. Mouth pieces are mandatory for the clinics and the kids need to start getting use to wearing them (even in touch).

8 Hours of tackle practice and the coaches approval is required before any teammate tackling will occur.

Tackle Thursdays – 5:30 – 7:00 pm

Tackle players should still try to make touch practice on Tuesdays to continue improving their other rugby skills like passing.
