GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL RUGBY IS ON HOLD IN LIGHT OF THE COVID-19 CRISIs. We will RETURN TO PLAY WHEN USA RUGBY DEEMS IT SAFE TO DO SO.
In conjunction with Rugby Colorado’s CORE (Center of Rugby Excellence), Female athletes in the Denver Metro area are invited to join the Glendale Girls’ All-State High School Rugby Team. The team is a competitive 15s side that plays and travels to tournaments and matches against other quality high school competition.
Stay Fit, Have Fun and Play Rugby
Play Girls Rugby
Glendale Girls HS Rugby Team
Rugby players from around the state are invited to play with Glendale’s competitive girls’ 15s travel squad. Rugby is played in 2 different codes – 7s and 15s. 7s is the fast-flowing Olympic sport, while 15s is the longer, more physical iteration. While 7s is already offered throughout Colorado for high schools for girls, there are limited options to have meaningful season-long competition in 15s. So we here at Glendale are leading the charge by kicking off a new spring season 15s option. If you are interested in learning more and getting involved with Glendale High School girls rugby, contact us ASAP!
- Glendale HS Head Coach – Madison Slaught
- Glendale HS Backs Coach – Julie Tordonato
- Glendale HS Forwards Coach – Jojo Kitlinski

Who we are
The Glendale High School Girls’ 15s team is geared towards increasing players’ skills, knowledge, and team-play to allow them to compete against other top clubs around the country. The goal is to provide players the opportunity to challenge themselves, increase their playing acumen, and heighten their skills. The team is open to rugby players from around the state of Colorado.
We expect you to come to trainings and games ready to play! Come with a willingness to learn, put your best effort in, and be a good teammate. This is a commitment to being a part of the team, attending trainings, and being available for games. We know circumstances will come up that impact availability, but we are expect an overall commitment.
WHAT YOU WILL GET
- You will get world class coaching from the Glendale Girls’ Coaching Staff, who are both highly qualified and trained coaches, as well as accomplished players.
- Opportunities to play in matches and national tournaments against top competition.
- The chance to be seen by College and USA National team scouts, as well as support pursuing those opportunities.
- Individual player development profiles to continue your growth
Training will begin February 3rd and will operate on an alternating schedule of Monday/Wednesday and Sunday/Wednesday trainings.
- Monday and Wednesday – 5:30pm-7:30pm
- Sunday – 2:00-4:00pm – time subject to change based on team/players needs
Location: Infinity Park Turf Field*
*The plan is to explore alternative training locations in the later spring once the weather is more consistent to not have players always have to come to Glendale.
Program Dues are $250 for the season, which helps to offset costs for athletic trainers, uniforms, tournament fees, etc.
There will also be travel costs associated with going to out-of-state tournaments that will be the responsibility of the individual player. We will work as a management team to identify cost-saving measures for travel opportunities.
Rugby is a sport for all, so no player will be turned away for financial reasons. If you need financial assistance (for dues or anticipated travel) please reach out to the program director, Jamie Burke at email@example.com
In addition to dues, all players must be registered with USA Rugby. This cost is $35 for the year. If you played 7s in the fall, then you should already be registered and will not need to do it again. We can transfer that registration to Glendale for the spring season! For all others, please visit https://webpoint.usarugby.org/ to get registered.
The match schedule is a work in progress and will be updated as dates and games/tournaments are confirmed.
