Panthers Rugby Club at SPASH was founded in 2017 as a club for girls in grades 9-12. Girls from any area school can play. Girls of all sizes and athletic talents are encouraged to join. There is a spot for you on the team!Rugby is a full-contact sport sometimes said to be a cross between soccer and football - only more awesome! For the fall high school league season, there are 15 players per side and the game is filled with non-stop action. The spring season is for 7 players per side - a faster-paced game and a more relaxed and shorter season.If you are interested in playing, please email SPASHgirlsrugby@gmail.com for more information and to get on the list.Practices for fall will be held on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursd
ay nights from 5-7 at Madison Elementary fields starting August 16, 2021Requirements: Girls must have a current physical or alternate year card on file as well as a current impact test. Impact testing for the fall will be Thurs., August 19 at 12:30 in the SPASH library. Some facilities that offer physicals also offer impact tests, so you can ask to get one at the same time if convenient. All girls must meet the academic standards of all SPASH sports and will need to sign up as members of USA Rugby as required of all rugby team members. Fees are usually $140 for fall and $100 for spring.
