  • SUNDAY, 31-Jul, U13 and U15 Tourney CANCELLED

    Due to the storms, and the fields being unavailable, the U13 and U15 tourney has been cancelled for Sunday.

  • Summer Schedule 2016

    The game schedule for the summer 2016 has been released.  The first matches are Saturday, June 18th.  Our tackle schedule is being finalized and will have more matches added.  Another full slate of youth games this year, culminating in the state festival on July 30th and 31st.

The Potomac Athletic Club, one of the leading rugby organizations in the country, 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 u13, u15 and u17 players who are interested in exploring the contact game.

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.
