Spring Quick Rip (Flag) Co-ed Rugby

Spring 2021 Coed Quick Rip (flag) Rugby

Quick Rip (flag) Rugby is a non-contact version of Rugby. Quick Rip is safe, noncontact, easy to play, and a great way to get fit and healthy. The aim is to score a try by grounding the ball behind or on the opponent’s goal line and that’s worth 5 points. To stop a try from being scored, the defenders must rip the tag from the belt of the ball carrier, forcing them to pass the ball straight away. Four rips in one set of possession for the attacking team and if they haven’t scored, they then have to hand the ball over to the defenders. 

The season is 5 weeks long and includes 10 sessions. Season dates are from May 17th to June 16th. Tuesdays/Thursdays (10 sessions) 6:00-7:15 pm at Andrew Rypien Field. The age groups for the Quick Rip program are 1st-2nd grade, 3rd-4th grade and 5th-6th grade. It is $70 to participate for the season and players receive a t-shirt. The deadline to register for the Quick Rip season is May 6th.

If you like the pace, excitement and skills of rugby but not the big hits, then Quick Rip is the game for you. 

Using fundamental development principles, an athlete centred approach and the cultural values special to rugby, I aim to provide a unique vehicle for the program to entice more kids into rugby long term. Purposely, I have used elements of the NZ Rugby youth development model that is heavily Māori inspired.

-Adriaan Ferris  (Athletic Director)
