PLAYNOLA Touch Rugby

Touch Rugby is back this summer with two sessions, including adult and youth co-ed leagues!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Game:
  • Rugby is Football without pads; Touch Rugby is Rugby without broken noses! 
  • The game is played by 2 teams of 6-11 players. 
  • Points are scored by placing the ball in the end zone. We call this scoring a “Try”. 
  • To get the ball to the end zone, you must pass backwards only (sorry aspiring quarterbacks!). The ball is progressed by running it forward. 
  • Tackling is very similar to flag football; a defender must “tag” the offense. In the event of a tackle, the offence places the ball on the ground and a teammate picks it up to continue play. On the 6th tag, possession is turned over to the defense. 
  • Dropping the ball, accidentally passing forward or any other infringement of the rules results in a change of possession. 
  • Games are 45 minutes long; 20 minute halves and 5 minute half time. 
  • The league is a round robin style with matches every Wednesday. Teams can expect to play every Wednesday of the season. There will be at least 2 games played per week.
  • Team with the most points at the end of the season, wins.
  • Team check in is at 15 minutes prior to kickoff. Youth league kickoff at 5:30p followed by adult league at 6:15pm and 7:00pm.
  • Teams must have enough players to put a team of 6 on the field.
 
The Teams:
  • Teams must consist of between 6 and 14 players. You must have a minimum of 3 females on a team.
  • Youth teams will be split up at the beginning of each match.
  • Each team must have 6-11 players on the field at a time, 2 of which must be females. 
  • The league will provide uniforms for all players and each team captain will receive a touch rugby ball.

  • 6 regular season games 
  • Team t-shirts 
  • Facility rental, field markings, and equipment
