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.

UNIFORMS

Each player will need to purchase a 2024 Try League jersey separate from the registration costs. .

Once a player has their jersey, they will not need to purchase another one until they outgrow it or move up from Flag to Tackle.  Jerseys are yours to keep.

PLEASE NOTE: there is a new jersey design as of April 2024, this means that, even if you played in Spring/Fall 2023, you will need to purchase a new jersey.
