In general, RugbyWA eligibility rules follow those of USA Rugby with some local variations. Please see the full Eligibility Policy document below as well as the Eligibility Waiver Application.
As we continue to move toward more acceptance by the local schools to gain school-based team status, we are registering our players by considering their grade level instead of their birthday and year. This is more in-keeping with the way the schools think and talk about their students and athletes.
The 2016-20-17 School year registration for RugbyWa will open September 1, 2016.
Students going into 1st and 2nd grade, 6 -8 years old, previously the U-9 teams, and going into 3rd and 4th grade, 8-10 years old, previously the U-11 teams, will play in Jamborees. These are team sponsored matches where all kids in that age group come together, to play rugby. They are coach reffed with coaching happening on field of play. All boys and girls are welcome and matches will be played so every player gets maximum playing time. These games will be non-contact.
Students going into 5th and 6th grades, 10-12 years old, previously the U-13 teams will have scheduled games but scores will not be recorded or kept as league play. These are the early development teams and the importance is on skill acquisition, sportsmanship, fitness and safety with rugby as a contact sport.
Students going into 7th and 8th grade, 12-14 years old, previously the U15's, will have scheduled and refereed matches using USAR rules for time and discipline. These teams are considered league play and will follow the path for play-offs and state championship tournaments.

This is just a game. These are teaching moments.
All of the coaches and assistant coaches are volunteers.
The Refs are human and have kids of their own. They get it.
We are always looking for new refs and would be happy to have you sign up and take the course.
This is not Six Nations, The World Cup, The Olympics or The Super Bowl. It's just a game. Please be Respectful of the players, the refs and the game.
