Early registration for Spring 2023 is open. The cost for registration with the Wolfhounds is $150. (Late registration fee of $175 begins on April 17, 2023.) However, there is an additional $30 (flag) or $45 (tackle) fee for registration with the Massachusetts Youth Rugby Organization that must be completed as well. The MYRO spring registration form is not yet available. Information will be provided to registering families as soon as that becomes available.
The Spring 2023 season will run from Wednesday, April 26, 2023 to Friday, June 23, 2023 for the U9 and U12 teams. The schedule for the U15 and high school teams is still TBD but will go from May through late July. See our Play page for information about practices and location.
The Spring 2023 season for the U9 and U12 teams will be largely instructional with games in the second part of the season once players have learned the game basics.
Kids age 6 through high school can play in the Hounds Youth Rugby program. Kids generally play in age groups of 6-9 (U9), 10-12 (U12), 13-15 (U15), and high school. When registering, you will be asked for your child's age so we can place your child onto the correct team.
Registration includes all practices and regular games in the season for which you are registering. The number of practices and games may vary based on weather, field conditions, and things outside of our control like Covid. (We will often play in rain, but we won't play when there is lightning.) Each player will receive a Wolfhounds jersey with registration.
Not at all. The kids on the Hounds Youth team come from all over the greater Boston area.
