FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Youth Rugby kicked off their opening season games at their home field at Potter Jr. High, Jan. 11 and Jan. 18. The young athletes, from ages 5-13, have been practicing since early December to take the fields.

U8 player Ian Perrington of Fallbrook Youth Rugby has some giggles before the game.

Fallbrook Youth Rugby has one U8 team, which plays flag rugby; one U10 team, which starting learning tackling; one U12 team and one U14 team. All teams are coed at this level. Fallbrook Youth Rugby games run until the last weekend in March, and the local league has one more home game – Feb. 1.

Allen Day, president of Fallbrook Youth Rugby, said, "It is such a great feeling to get all the kids on the fields at the first games of the season. They are excited, the parents are excited and all the volunteer work pays off on game day. It is also nice to have all teams on one field so parents can quickly move from a U8 game over to a U12 game. If Potter didn't support us, this convenience would not be possible. We are so grateful to have the community's support like this."
