Scottsdale Wolves Youth Rugby Team History
The Scottsdale Wolves Youth team was started in 2008 as an extension of the Scottsdale Wolves High School program.  The Wolves were AZ U13 champions in 2011 and 2012, and went on to gain additional titles and honors as the league expanded in several divisions.  We are extremely proud to be the oldest, largest and most decorated Youth Rugby team in Arizona.
Even though we are proud of the trophies obtained through the years, our main focus is to offer affordable, fun and safe exposure to rugby to the largest number of players.  We ensure that all players, regardless of skills, experience or age get play time and coaching focus.  We also pride ourselves in a big family culture with parent and supporter involvement to cheer the teams, and family picnic and game days where parents get to mix and play with kids, to join into the rugby experience through friendly touch rugby games.
The team is open to all and enrollment is not limited to a school or school district.   The objective is to introduce boys and girls to rugby through the non-contact version of the sport.  We hope for our players to embrace the fun and values of this great sport, and continue practicing it through our High School program.  The Scottsdale Youth team is tighly integrated with the other Scottsdale Rugby teams (High School and men), sharing administrative support, fields and other resources.
