Alexandria Rugby FIT Touch rugby is a coed program for children starting in last year of preschool through fourth grade.
FIT Touch rugby is a great introduction to the basics of rugby. Each age level adds skills, starting with passing behind you, staying behind the ball carrier, building to uncontested scrums and line-outs.
We are part of Rugby Virginia and play teams from Springfield, Loudoun, Great Falls, Vienna, Richmond and Western Suburbs (Manassas and western Fairfax).
Alexandria Rugby takes exceptional pride in being an inclusive organization that wants children to have fun, participate in physical activity, learn to be respectful and be part of a team.
There are no tryouts or elite teams; everybody plays and we have learned that we can have better competition and more fun by mixing different levels of experience and talent on a team.
We have a modest annual fee that covers all three of our seasons, uniform (that you keep), tournament registration fees, and field usage costs.
There are three seasons of FIT Touch Rugby.
Fall Fun League: A great way to come and try out the game and meet the other families and see how much fun the kids and parents have at Alexandria Rugby events. Fall Fun practices are Sunday afternoon from middle of September to middle of November. We will usually get together for an afternoon or two with other local clubs to have some fun scrimmages.
Spring Fun League: Like the Fall Fun League, Spring is one or two days a week with some opportunities to play games on Saturday. It runs from early April to the end of May when the summer season starts.
Summer Season: This is the primary season of tag rugby, which runs from June till late July. There are two practices a week on Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00-7:00/7:30 and games on Saturday.
