About Tackle Rugby

Updated Friday January 20, 2017 by CJRA.

Registration for the CJRA 2017 Spring Season is now open. Any player who is looking to play this year will need to register through our registration portal.

 

 

Our goal is to provide a pathway for our players to be involved with rugby from elementary school through into high school.
We have established a strong introductory touch rugby program and now are focused on transitioning our players from touch to tackle through our Summer and Fall Camps.

We think that growing rugby at grassroots is essential to developing a strong high school program and providing an opportunity for girls and boys to be hooked on rugby for the rest of their lives.

CJRA offers seasonal tackle rugby in both winter and spring as well as offering Summer and Fall Camps and Scimmages
