Summer 2021 registration is open! First practice = June 7th.
Note: We are NOT charging dues this summer but you will still need to sign up via the button below and ALSO via USA Rugby which will cost only $25.
Step 1: Click the button below to sign up for this season. This includes our local (Birmingham) liability waiver.
Step 2: THEN, AFTER you complete that local registration, click the link below to register as a USA Rugby member, which is only $25 for this group. Both are mandatory to play. Once you are on the USA Rugby registration page you will need to select Type = Youth & High School, Region = Rugby Alabama, and Club Name = Central Alabama. Then at the bottom of the screen choose “High School.”
Important News 4/19/21:
– 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.
Central Alabama High School Rugby Sevens = U19
(Ages 14 or 15-18)
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!
