Youth Rugby Practices for 2021 to begin June 7th.

We are taking extra precautions due to COVID-19. We are closely monitoring the information on the Alabama Department of Public Health’s COVID-19 web page at https://www.alabamapublichealth.gov/covid19/index.html.

– We are NOT charging CAYR season dues this year, but do not expect us to provide jerseys, shorts, socks, balls, etc. We will have jerseys that can be borrowed on tournament days if tournaments happen.

– We anticipate 7s tournaments will happen the summer of 2021 be cannot guarantee other youth teams will participate due to COVID-19. We’re going to try very hard to have teams to play against. If we do, and you are able to attend, we will split the tournament entry fees among participants.
