Seattle Vikings invite Edmonds youth to join rugby team

Registration for Seattle Vikings rugby for boys and girls ages 7 to 18 is now open with practices starting in January at Seattle’s Magnuson Park.

“We really want to connect with kids in Edmonds about the sport of rugby,” said Craig Wicks, Director of Coaching, Seattle Vikings RFC (Rugby Football Club). “We see a real opportunity for rugby to grow here as a fun sport that celebrates diversity and fair play, and brings a real sense of community to players and their families.”

Rugby is one of the fastest growing sports for youth in the U.S., and will be included in the Olympics in 2016. You can learn more about their spring rugby season at www.seattlevikings.com or by emailing rugby@seattlevikings.com.
