Firebirds Youth Rugby Player Registration


In order to grow our numbers to fill out these teams we need help from all current players to bring their friends out to give rugby a try!

Come and join a practice and see what rugby is all about!  It is free to come to a practice and check it out.

Also, we are a co-ed squad so bring out the girls as well as the boys!  Girls rugby is also a fast growing sport (check it out at the Olympics!) and the Firebirds encourage girls to come out and give rugby a try.  

REMEMBER:  It is never too late to get started with rugby.  If you have kids that are interested and want to give it a shot, bring them out to practice and we'll get them involved!
