Scottsdale Wolves U14 Team History The Scottsdale Wolves Under 14 team was started in 2008 as an extension of the Scottsdale Wolves U19 program. The Wolves were AZ U13 champions in 2011 and 2012. 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 U14 team is tighly integrated into the Scottsdale Rugby teams, sharing administrative support, fields and other resources.
