USA Rugby is proud to offer Intramural Flag Rugby as the non-contact game and starting point in our nation’s Rugby for All development pathway.
Rugby originated almost 200 years ago and today it is played by over 5 million people in 120 countries across 6 continents! This Olympic sport has been taking the United States by storm, involving kids of all ages in schools, after-school programs, community organizations, and leagues.
Intramural Flag Rugby is designed with the American athlete in mind. It is a fun, safe, team game that develops a range of ball handling, running and evasion skills. Participants learn the importance of teamwork and respect for opponents, coaches and referees, which are key elements of all athletic endeavors.
The sport of rugby is simple to understand, organize, and teach. USA Rugby has created many tools to help explain the skills, rules and values associated with this special game. Whether you are a former player, long time supporter or new to the game, you too, can be a part of INTRAMURAL FLAG RUGBY!
All you have to do is PICK UP THE BALL AND RUN WITH IT!
