This flag rugby program is an introductory rugby program for children under the age of 10. The program is divided into Under 8’s (ages 5-7) and Under 10’s (ages 8-9). Registration is based on your child’s age as of 8/31/18. There are three training programs that your child can be involved in, or your child can sign up for the ‘full year’/annual membership which includes formal training opportunities between January-July and social opportunities throughout the year.

  • Fall Rugby:  Currently in session. But you can join in anytime.  

  • Indoor Winter Skills Development Training: Dates to be determined.

  • Spring Rugby Flag Program/League: Dates to be determined.

  • Annual Membership: Participation in ALL programs/seasons all year

Fall Rugby Program/League: The fall rugby program runs from September through November. Practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-7pm at Veterans Park in Fairfield, CT. Tournaments are on Sundays, typically in the mornings.

Winter Skills Development Training: This once/week indoor practice will begin in January or February.

Spring Flag Rugby Program/League: The spring rugby program is a round robin program consisting of co-ed flag rugby teams of 5-6 players. Commitment is one day/weekend, Saturday afternoons (sometime between 1-4pm). The one-hour weekly program will consist of practice/training in various rugby skills (e.g., passing, running in line, etc.). The second half will consist of a scrimmage against another flag rugby team within the program. This ensures that the children have some fun, experience real application of skills learned, and also engage in some competition. Players from all towns are welcome to play in the club.

The flag rugby program is run by Gennaro Gelsi, an experienced rugby player and coach who serves as a physical education teacher in the Fairfield Elementary Public School System. He also serves as one of the High School coaches in the Fairfield Rugby Program.
