What is rugby?
Rugby is a fast paced, team-oriented, contact sport that originated in England in the 19th Century.
There are two formats; 15 players per side and 7 players per side. In the 15s format, games are played in two, 40-minute halves. In 7s, each half is 7 minutes long. The sport is exceptionally dynamic and free-flowing and requires every player to pass, catch, kick, tackle, and run. All athletes play both offense and defense and decision making is widely distributed. There are positions for all body types and the sport is known for being both inclusive and community-minded.
Rules are the same for male and female athletes and very little equipment is required to engage beyond cleated boots and a mouth guard.
