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!
All age grades share the practice field together.
Practice is generally on Mondays and Wednesdays, 6:00 pm to 7.30 pm for Youth and 6.00 pm to 8:00 pm for High School & U16.
For the 2022-2023 Rugby Arizona league season we will again be offering the following teams and levels for kids to play:
