SPRING Try League
Try your rugby skills and play for Glendale Youth Rugby in Rugby Colorado’s Try League. Try teams play in festival-like settings called Jamborees and start out playing 7-a-side or Olympic-style rugby, but progressively build to more numbers as they age. Each Jamboree is hosted by Rugby Colorado where all age levels play at one location on a Saturday in the summer months of May and June.
This program will continue to follow all our established Covid-19 mitigation practices and will operate under the allowable Arapahoe County guidelines and restrictions and Rugby Colorado Return to Play Guidelines.
