“Rugby Comes to Town”


For the first time a Youth Rugby Program is being offered in the area. Centaurs Youth Rugby is a Non-Contact Flag sport for boys and girls ages 5 to 12/grades K to 6. Its first spring season is starting April 1, 2019. The program is flexible offering 2 afternoon sessions per week, with matches on alternative weekends. The program is a youth recreation and development program and is open to children in all towns.

Our program is located at the UMASS Mount Ida Campus in Newton, just a few minutes from Route 9 and from the I-95 Kendrick Street exit. We are within 20 minutes for residents from Weston, Waltham, Wellesley, Needham, Newton, West Roxbury, Dedham, Waltham and Brookline. Centaurs Rugby Boston joins the league of youth clubs operating in Massachusetts under the Massachusetts Youth Rugby Organization and Rugby USA infrastructure.

Rugby is an all-inclusive sport played around the world and rapidly growing in popularity in the USA. Rookie rugby is a fast-moving safe non-contact game that involves all kids in catching, passing and running, having fun and building friendships. The Centaurs program will develop your child’s fitness, mobility, motor skills, developing in children self-confidence, leadership, decision making, respect for others, working as a team, commitment, overcoming fears and taking on challenges with the correct attitude, being great sportsmen and women. It’s not all about winning the Match, it is about nurturing a child for life, that is the win.

Centaurs Rugby Boston is a nonprofit 501c3 youth organization offering an affordable sporting option for your children to be outdoors, get fit, have fun, and make friends all whilst learning the game of Rugby through qualified and professional coaching staff in a safe fun environment. Centaurs believes an inspired child is an inspiration child.
