2013-2014 SEASON

The Wolves Youth Rugby club had a very successful 2013-2014.  We had a record number of 44 players joining us, making us not only the oldest Youth Rugby team in Arizona but also the largest.  Also our number of teams increased to 5, with a U14 Boys Tackle team, a U14 Coed Touch team, U11 Coed Touch, U8 Coed Touch and finally the league's first all-girl team, the Little Devils, coached by players from the ASU Women's rugby team and competing in U14 Touch.

Practice started on Tuesday September 17, 2013 and the first league games started Saturday October 26, 2013.  The Devil's cup on December 7, 2013 was also a successful even which closed our fall season before the holiday break.

The 2014 championship started on January 18, 2014 followed by several Saturdays of exciting games for all of our teams.  The March 1, 2014 playoffs were very successful with the Wolves bringing back the U14 Coed Touch championship title, and being runners-up in tightly contested U11 and U8 Final games.  This additional hardware made us the most decorated Youth Rugby team in Arizona.  More importantly the playoffs were a fun conclusion to the season, with the Wolves competing in a festive way with our Blue war paint!

For post-season fun we had our year-end party with a family picnic and a set of fun games including parents and coaches!  Make sure to visit our facebook page for the photos. Finally the Wolves were invited to play as a pre-game opener to the Rugby Bowl opposing the ASU team to BYU, one of the top Rugby College teams in the US.

Through the summer coach Ron Dave organized a set of workouts every two Saturdays to give all an opportunity to play rugby and keep active during the break.
