AYRU 2018 Spring Season Update - April 15

  • Our schedule is updated!  We have added two dates for match play, Apr. 28th and May 12th.  Please visit the schedule tab for details.
  • We have a rolling registration policy in our league and can still take new players! You can still play a 1/2 season of youth rugby for 1/2 the price.  Use the code LATESEASON on the AYRU registration checkout page and register for $40.  However, you still must register your player with USARugby, per instructions on our registration page.  This is our liability and supplemental medical insurance policy, and a requirement for all sanctioned rugby organizations in US.
