Newport County Youth Rugby Football Club

The sport of rugby has a long standing tradition of encouraging physical fitness, camaraderie, competitive spirit, and most importantly, FUN! Rugby is fast-paced, exciting, and one of the most popular team sports in the world. It is considered one of the fastest growing youth sports in the United States, and has been included in the Summer Olympics!


The growth of the game in the United States is at an all-time high thanks largely to its re-introduction into the Olympic Games. Athletes of all shapes and sizes, from a diverse array of competitive backgrounds, are ready to test their abilities in a new sport. Also, the epidemic of obesity among young people has parents, teachers, and administrators eagerly anticipating new and creative options for kids to pick up a ball and run with it. Island Rugby is here to help!

Please know that we will try to fill the empty weekends, so the schedule could change.

*Note: Please know we are always working on scheduling matches. If you do not see your age group on some dates, no worries. It is because most other clubs do not have all age groups available. We will have plenty of rugby for everyone! 

Summer 7’s rugby is played in June & July. If you are interested in playing rugby during the summer, there will be plenty of opportunity. Please let us know if you are interested in summer rugby. Thank you!
