Our mission at North Bay U19 Girls Rugby is to give high school aged girls in Harford County, and surrounding areas, the chance to play the fastest growing Olympic sport in America, have a lot of fun, and create lifelong friendships.  We draw from every high school in the county, as well as Carroll County, and Pennsylvania.

Who We Are          

According to BBC Sports, "the aim of the game is very simple - use the ball to score more points than the other team. You can run with the ball, kick it and pass it, but passing forwards is not allowed. Rugby is a contact sport, so you can tackle an opponent in order to get the ball, as long as you stay within the rules."

Our team plays Spring 15's, which means we have 15 players on the field at a time, for a total of 30.  Our playing season typically runs from early March until early May.  We start indoor practice in January, and move outside in early March.  Practice is held two times a week, with an added lift/film review session one time a week.  There is a open registration period, and all players are required to register for the season.  Practice is mandatory, as well as committing to games and tournaments.  

We also play Fall 7s, which, you guessed it, means there are 7 players on the field at a time, for a total of 14.  The games are shorter and faster paced than 15s.  Practice is held once a week and the season has 4 - 5 tournaments, which are played on Sundays.  If  you can come to practices and play when we have tournaments, that's all we can ask for.  The key is communication with the coaching staff!
