Learn to play rugby
LAHAINA – It’s time for summer rugby fun with Maui Rugby.
In free, open sessions, boys and girls, teens and adults, can learn rugby in a non-contact “tag/flag” format. Those who are ready for tackle can learn all the variations of the rugby sports.
Sessions are held at 5 p.m. on Monday nights at Kenolio Park next to Kihei Youth Center, Lahaina Recreation Center on Tuesdays, and Thursdays at the Kahului Community Center field.
Visitors are welcome to join in the fun; participants need not attend every practice.
Parents are encouraged to join in the rugby touch sessions and to learn to become referees and coaches. Training for both is available for free.
