Morris Rugby Football Club sponsors a Community based Boys U19 High School rugby program. The program is intended for high school aged students 15 to 19 yrs of age and open to all players with or without experience. If you haven't tried playing rugby yet, now is the time! The program is run as a full contact activity with matches scheduled against other U19 programs throughout the Tri-State area. We also enter into 2 or 3 tournaments during the season to introduce players to teams from outside the local area. Training sessions are designed to develop the skills necessary to succeed at this exciting sport, focusing on fitness, running, passing and the strategic elements required to ensure a fundamental knowledge of the game. The training sessions will also ensure players are properly prepared if they express interest in continuing their rugby playing careers into college and beyond.
Spring outdoor practices will be held in front of Mennen Arena starting in early March, continuing until late May, on Tues. and Thurs. evenings, 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Fall sessions, held on Sunday afternoons, begin in early October, continuing until Mid-November, followed by our annual Rudy Kelly Alumni Game. Winter Indoor practice sessions are being held at Randolph Indoor Sports Pavilion (ISP) from 8-9pm each Thursday evening starting in early December, continuing through late February. League and non-league matches will be played in the spring during the week or on weekends, depending on league requirements. USARFU Certified rugby coaches from the Morris Rugby Club make up the coaching staff.
