Kearney YMCA Offers Youth Rugby Program


The Kearney Family YMCA and USA Rugby are joining together to offer Youth Flag Rookie Rugby, a safe, non-contact, and easy to play game for both boys and girls.

The program is available for all ages and skill levels. Kids will learn fun introductory games leading up to full flag rugby, learning all the basic skills needed to play.

Teams will be split up by grade and assigned to teams by the YMCA.

The season included six games, held on Saturdays between April 6 and May 18 (no game on April 27). Games begin at 9 a.m. on the YMCA fields.

The coach will schedule one additional practice per week. The fee to participate is $25 for members and $40 for non-members.

The registration deadline is March 24 with late registration costing an additional $5.
