All about Rugby Football—Adult and Youth Clubs

By Savannah Adams Subscribe to RSS | March 15th 2012 | Views:

Rugby is an exciting sport for young people and adults alike. With some of its rules similar to football, rugby has fast developed into a national favorite sport, making sports complexes swell with crowds that opt for regular rugby games. Today, different professional and youth rugby clubs expand the reach of rugby games in major cities of the US. The game regulations are different in the two major types of rugby–league and union. The youth rugby clubs observe the core of International Rugby Board (IRB) principles.

IRB keeps rugby open for all. Regardless of gender, strength, age, and skills, every person is allowed to play rugby. The clubs determine the participation of players based on their levels of ability in a controlled, competitive, and enjoyable environment. The IRB principles preserve the rugby features that are distinct from other sports, including rucks, re-start, and mauls. They also keep rugby entertaining and enjoyable more than a serious and offensive sport.

Like other tournament games, rugby games are played between two teams, each having 13 or 15 players. A rugby game typically lasts for 80 minutes split in two 40-minute halves. Similar to American football, rugby players are allowed to kick the ball anytime not only for goal and penalty kicks. Within the 80 minutes of play, one team should obtain more points than its opponent through tries, goals, and field goals. Rugby teams in prominent states like Colorado see to it that games don’t end at draw to make for exciting matches.

A draw can be declared if both teams have the same score, although this can be broken through the golden point–a rule used to resolve drawn matches–depending on the relevant competition’s format. The best way for Colorado rugby teams to score is to make tries. A try is made by touching the ball beyond the defending team’s goal-line or on the ground. Other vital rules may influence the scoring as some attempts may fail or be discredited due to violations.

The intensity of a game can wreak havoc in the field sometimes, similar to nearly all sports. That is why in Colorado youth rugby, a disciplinary committee is designated to monitor and execute necessary disciplinary actions for violators of rules. It is usually composed of a parent, a former coach, and a coach.

Rugby should be arbitrated by a professional referee whose expertise in rugby is usually higher than the players. Veteran players from professional Colorado rugby clubs or former players from championing teams are the ones often hired as referees, especially to special matches.
