Rugby for boys and girls – No Experience Necessary.
The Montreal Barbarians Club realizes that the future of rugby rests with our youth. With this in mind we provide fun, exciting and active programs for young rugby players. The training sessions are designed to help children develop better balance, physical skills, endurance, and strength while having lots of fun! Programs are also designed with safety in mind and to better educate kids about the benefits of rugby.
Kids will learn the basic rules of rugby, skills such as kicking, catching, and passing a ball as well as life skills such as respect, teamwork, and sportsmanship. For the older kids tackling will be introduced.
