2021 Minnesota Youth Rugby Summer Program

Introduction to Rugby

Our goal is to introduce rugby to the Hopkins/Minnetonka community.  Rugby provides a sport & place for many kids to participate in a character-building team sport.  There is both a Girl's and Boy's High School team in Hopkins.  Rugby is the fastest growing team sport in the world.  We want to provide opportunities for a life-long activity.

The age of your child on July 1st, 2021 determines their age bracket.  There may be some exceptions with regards to a player's weight and age.  They may play up or down an age group for safety reasons.  A waiver must be completed to play up or down. 

The coaching team will determine appropriate levels.

Registration is opening June 24th

Mondays July 19th - August 23rd

Ask not what your local eight-time championship rugby club can do for you; ask what you can do for Hopkins Rugby!  The strength of our club has always been our families, who run our socials, take pictures and videos, recruit our players, make a lot of friends, and have almost as much fun as the kids! See our coaches or team parents, Julie Anderson for the boys team and Tammy Peterson for the girls.
