CMS Winter Sports is pleased to offer Co-Ed Flag Rugby.
Description: According to sport’s lore, in 1823 William Webb Ellis, a pupil at Rugby School in England, defied the conventions of the day (that the ball may only be kicked forward) to pick up the ball and run with it in a game, thus creating the game of rugby.
Rugby is a team sport that allows you to create your own opportunities playing both offense and defense at the same time. Rugby is the only contact sport offered to Girls in High School and College. Rugby builds character and welcomes you into a community unlike any other in the world.
Rugby is now the fastest growing sport in the Nation and home of one the best professional teams in America, the San Diego Legion. Coronado Rugby was created seven years ago and we pride ourselves on modeling excellence and an attitude of continued improvement. We play rugby to be with our friends, to have fun and just like our predecessors to be just a little bit different.
What you can expect from each class:
- Improved strength, agility and fitness
- A learning environment built upon support of your fellow teammate
