FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Youth Rugby is underway for the 2019-2020 season. Fallbrook Youth Rugby kicked off the season with a clinic run by the Fallbrook High School Warriors boys' rugby team, Nov. 16, as a league fundraiser.
"The league had a great turnout with many new players excited to learn the sport of rugby, which is why we hold these clinics, to introduce Fallbrook Rugby to as many athletes as we can," Jen Day said.
Youth between the ages of 7 to 12 are welcome to come out to the next rugby clinic hosted by the Fallbrook High girls' rugby team, Sunday, Jan. 5, at the high school stadium from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Cost is $25 a child with sibling discounts available. For more information, email [email protected]
Despite the rainy weather, practices began for most of Fallbrook Youth Rugby the week of Dec. 2 at Potter Junior High School. Games will begin the first weekend in January so coaches are preparing the athletes to work together and to teach the sport to new players.
Fallbrook Youth Rugby took a break to enjoy the traditional Fallbrook Christmas Parade, Dec. 7, with athletes riding on the league float and walking the route to hand out candy canes. League President Allen Day said, "The kids always love the parade. It's a great way to kick off the winter season and the players love interacting with the community."
