Important News 4/19/21:

Youth Rugby Practices for 2021 to begin June 7th.

– 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.

Central Alabama High School Rugby Sevens = U19

Registration for age 14 or 15-18 High School tackle: Date of Birth between 9/2/01 and 9/1/05 (14 year olds can play up) for the year ending 8/31/21

Cost: There will be NO Birmingham / CAYR team DUES this summer as long as you sign a waiver. USA Rugby dues will only be $25 for players in the “high school” category, which is players on the U15 and U19 tackle teams.

Style = Boys Only Tackle Rugby (if enough girls are interested we will add a girls division as well). 7s. That means 7 on 7 rather than 15 on 15.

When and Where? Practices for this age will begin June 7, 2021 and likely end the week of August 2, 2021. They will be Monday and Wednesday nights from 6:00 – 7:30pm at Krebs Field at Ramsay Park (3601 Montclair Road in Birmingham). ALSO, if we have enough players sign up from specific high schools and if we have access to fields near their schools, we will likely be able to have additional practices for specific high school teams, so go ahead and form a whole high school team!
