Rugby is in the Olympics and in Richmond

Have you been watching women's and men's rugby in the Olympics this summer?  Are you interested in playing rugby and have questions?  Below is some information about our youth rugby program.

Richmond Lions Youth Rugby has teams for both boys and girls in grades PreK - 12th.

Rugby has two seasons - Spring runs from March through May with players from 5th through 12th grades. Summer runs from May though July with players from PreK - 12th grade.

We will have Sunday skills sessions and pick up games during the Fall, where we split groups up according to age and then play fun touch matches.  This is a great way for your player to meet other rugby players and become familiar with the game.

If you would like more information or to be added to our email list, please email us at richmondlionsyouthrugby@gmail.com.

Congratulations

Just want to take a minute to congratulate our players who played with the Rugby Virginia Middle School Select Side at the USA Rugby South Regional Cup Tournament in Charlotte this weekend.  We had 4 boys participate (7 including the Prince William Players), and Coach Mark Satterfield.  Representing Richmond were Connor Speidell (Man of the Match), Michael Dennis, Andrew Pilcher, and Anders Jensen.  Representing Prince WIlliam were Casey Burr, Dylan VanStry, and Quentin (Q) Schumaker.  THe boys played a hard-fought tournament.  They lost their first match to the Charlotte All-Stars 23-5, then recovered with a 32-0 victory over the Georgia Rugby Select Side, a 24-10 victory over the Eastern Carolina All-Stars.  They then had to face Charlotte again in the Championship Cup match.  Virginia scored first, and the end of regulation saw the game in a 14-14 tie.  After a 5 minute sudden death overtime which was dominated by Virginia, who could just not get the ball over the try line, they went to a kickoff.  Unfortunately, Charlotte made 3 of their 5 kicks, while Virginia could only convert 2.  It was well played, and we should all be very proud of these boys.
