• 2017 Winter Clinic – Sunday Dec 17th

    New players and veterans are welcome for our first winter clinic on Sunday, December 17th, 12:45 – 2:15 at Holy Redeemer School  This will include some basic learning of contact elements of the game.  NEW and experienced players are encouraged to attend! 

    This event is for 5th thru 8th graders.

    Players must be registered with USARugby and have a mouthpiece to participate in the contact portion of the practice.

The Potomac Athletic Club, offers “non-contact” tag rugby for boys and girls ages 5 through 15, and tackle rugby for boys through age 17. Youth “tag” rugby involves running, passing, kicking, offense, defense, scrums, lineouts, mauls, and scoring!  We also support introduction to tackle and rugby development programs for our middle school (u15) athletes who are interested in exploring the contact game.  New in 2017 is spring tackle for 5th thru 8th grade boys!

Players must play both offense and defense because possession can and will change at any time. It brings together skills from lacrosse, soccer, basketball, lacrosse and football and a lot more…all wrapped into one, fast, exciting game.

Our program is based in Silver Spring, MD, though players from any community are welcome. Co-ed teams are organized to suit the number of youth in the program.

The club participates in the Rugby Maryland Youth League with other under-9, under-11, under-13, under-15 teams from the Washington metro area.  Also, we offer an “in-house” u7 program to teach the basics and encourage participation of all ages. The older of these players will sometimes get a chance to play in the under-9 games.  Typically, the under-9 and under-11 will practice together but play as u9 and u11 teams. Similarly the under-13 and under-15 squads train together though play in different age based divisions.  Occasionally players will cross over to a different age group if skill levels and competition is appropriate.



    2017 Registration is OPEN and ONLINE. Sign up now!
