The Lil Devils
Dear Parents and Players,
The Tempe Rugby Club was founded in 1980 and is a 501c(3) non-profit group that offers the opportunity for young boys and girls in the Phoenix Metropolitan area to experience and enjoy the sport of rugby. Tempe strives to provide the highest standard and quality of coaching, foster teamwork, cultivate a winning focus, and to develop each player to the best of his/her potential in a fun and safe environment. All coaches, parents, supporters, and players are expected to be mindful of and abide by the Club Code of Conduct, which emphasizes respect for the opposition, referee, supporters, the game, and Tempe’s winning tradition.
The Tempe Rugby Club is registered with USA Rugby and competes in up to two five youth divisions each year, which includes U10, U12, U14 Tackle and U8/10, U12/14 Touch rugby. The Little Devils are coached by USA Rugby registered coaches and includes current and former senior members of the Tempe Rugby Club, most of which have advanced playing experience nationally and internationally.
The Youth season generally begins with a competitive 7s schedule in the Fall (Nov/Dec), a competitive league schedule in the Spring with playoffs and championships wrapping up in April. Generally, our Teams practice once or twice per week and play on weekends, which provides for some flexibility for members of our Club that are multisport athletes (football, wrestling, etc.), are involved in other extracurricular activities, and hoping to balance these other interests with Club rugby.
The Tempe Rugby Club Youth Teams are always looking for athletes of all shapes, sizes, and skill levels…no experience is required and nobody gets cut.
