Why should YOU play rugby?

Rugby Rules Promote Safety - The Jr. Blues teach safe tackling and safe contact is part of the rules of rugby.  Rugby tackling is a safer alternative to football tackling, in fact, high school, college and NFL teams are promoting this to make NFL safer.  Hits to the head can get you kicked out of the game immediately

Physical Fitness - Playing with the Junior Blues will make you fitter, faster and stronger!  Rugby requires you to improve your strength, agility, hand eye coordination and endurance.  Wherever you are on the fitness spectrum, playing rugby will vastly improve that level.

Everyone Carries the Ball - No X on your helmets with the Junior Blues.  If you spent your whole football career being banned from carrying the ball because you were bigger than the other kids and you always wanted to carry the rock, Junior Blues Rugby is for you.  

Social Benefit - Rugby is fun and helps develop social skills not only with your rugby brothers and coaches but your community in general.  "Players learn how to work well as a team and think about how decisions that are made will benefit not just themselves, but also their peers." (Leana Kell)

Rugby Comradery - Rugby builds a bond with teammates like no other sport.  It is the ultimate team sport where you not only bond with team mates, but are encouraged to socialize with the competition.

College Rugby - There are over 900 men’s and women's clubs on college campuses across the country, and if your college of choice has a rugby team or club, YOU can be a part of it.  Rugby continues to grow in the U.S. and some schools are now offering rugby scholarships.
