42nd Annual
NAZR 10's Tournament

The 42nd Annual NAZ Rugby 10's Tournament is coming up October 7th, 2023.  Not only will this perhaps be the best tournament in this history of sport, it just might be the greatest social in the galaxy. The theme of this year's tournament is "The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything is 42" so think about that and get yourself a costume together, train up and get ready for a good time in the pines!

Summer Touch Rugby

Summer Touch Rugby Flagstaff

Summer touch rugby meet-ups are on Thursdays at 6:00pm and Saturdays from 10:00am to 11:30am at Duckpond Field at Thorpe Park

 

Touch rugby is free, no registration, no experience necessary and is open to all – youth (must be at least 8 years old), High School and adult. Rugby Family friendly.
 

Find out about rugby by getting to know the rules all summer (real rugby is generally a winter sport).
It is “touch” rugby rather than tackle, so it is easy, safe and a good introduction to the greatest sport in the world.

To get to Duck Pond Field take Aztec St. north off Cherry Ave. until it dead ends into parking lot.

Rugby is more than a sport. Rugby is a subculture

Basics you should know if you wish to participate in this subculture:

  • The home team is required to host an after match eat and greet (known as the “social”). The away team is required to be good guests. Countless great lifelong friendships have been made at after-match socials between opposing players. Opponents on the pitch and friends off it. Respect for all participants is required.

  • Respect the referee. Only the Captain of a side is allowed to initiate a conversation with the ref. If a referee initiates a conversation with you, the first and last words out of your mouth should be “sir” or “ma’am”. It is a penalty for anyone (player or spectator) to complain or criticize a referee. In fact, if a person is being rude or criticizing even a player(s) that person can be kicked off premises and/or be called for a penalty. It is always a good idea for spectators to yell “tackle low” or “run straight”. 

  • It is considered bad form to over celebrate a score or phenomenal play, as well as to make noise during a kick for post (Conversion or penalty kick).

  • It is always appropriate to be lighthearted, joke and laugh. Everyone wants to win but sports aren’t the end-all be-all of life. Rugby players are tough people and most truly tough people do not have to “act” tough or in a rude manner, making for very friendly socialization at rugby events.

  • Safety is always third in rugby.
