Clubs in the AYRU


The AYRU has 4 "clubs" serving the Albuquerque area for youth rugby.  Players ages 7-15 are deligated to each club based on the high school district they live in.  Within each club players are divided by age into teams of U9, U11, U13 and U15 non-contact and contact teams.  U9 and U11 teams are all non-contact and mixed boys and girls.  Contact rugby is offered at U13 and U15 - boys and girls are preferentially seperated into different teams, though girls can play with boys under special circumstances.  There is additional non-contact team play at U13 and U15 of mixed boys and girls teams.
