RECRUITING DRIVE

We are always looking for players and it is never too late to get started with rugby.  All our age groups need a few more players so that we can be sure that each week we are able to field a team plus have a couple of subs.

The easiest way to show someone the sport is to "bring a friend" to practice!  (it is free to do so).  If anyone has questions about this, contact Coach Rob.

practice location

Firebirds practices are on Mondays and Wednesdays. 
6-7.30pm for youth; 6-8pm for HS/U16.

We practice at Longview Elementary this season (1209 E Indian School Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85014). 

Park in the northern parking lot closest to Indian School, go through the gate and follow the lights to the field.

It is never too late to join the club, we happily accept new players during the season, so come out to practice (it's free to check out a practice) and check it out.

Registration is now open!

Go to our Registration Page and follow the steps to get your player registered with USA Rugby and with the Firebirds Club.

RECRUITING: HELP GROW OUR GREAT SPORT!

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!

Practice Location & Schedule

We practice at Longview Elementary (1209 E Indian School Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85014).  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 2019-2020 season we will again be offering the following teams and levels for kids to play:

  • Boys and Girls tackle 7s & 15s rugby for High School, U16, U14
  • Co-ed tackle 7s rugby for U10, U12
