Rookie Rugby is the US brand of flag rugby. Rookie Rugby is a safe, non-contact, easy to play game for both boys and girls of all ages! It is played in schools, parks and recreation leagues, and community organizations across the country. The rookie rugby rules are simple, the game is easy to learn, and minimal equipment is required.

Kids are four times more likely to play a sport if they play it in P.E. classes and after-school programs first. Because of this we want to see a flag rugby unit taught in every community based programs in the area! 

This exciting, fast-paced activity will have kids moving and having fun in no time! Rookie Rugby satisfies the National Standards for Physical Education as outlined by the National Association of Sport and Physical Education (NASPE).​​
