Two successful flag programs make up the future of MUR Clubs in longstanding Madison Flag and our newest progressively growing club in Monona Grove.
Madison Flag Rugby
The Madison Flag Rugby Club was founded in 2017 – the natural evolution of Madison United Rugby’s youth program, which began in 2010. We strive to provide an enjoyable and safe introduction to the sport of rugby! Rugby can be a great addition to your child’s personal and athletic development. It’s a fun and active sport. Everyone carries the ball and learns passing, kicking, catching, and team and space strategy. Rugby skills carry over to other sports, as do our standards of fair play and civility. Flag rugby is the ideal way to learn the game!
Our player/coaches are from the Senior, Collegiate, and High School clubs of Madison United Rugby. But playing experience is not necessary to be a good coach, and we are actively recruiting parents to help out by learning to coach. All coaches are trained to the SafeSport standards of USA Rugby.
Monona Grove Flag Rugby
The MG Silver Eagles are entering their 4th season in 2023 with participation flourishing along the way. Summer of 2022 saw more than 80 players between 1st and 8th grade.
Attending every tournament and practice is NOT fully expected. This program aims to introduce the sport of rugby the right way while sharing its values and aiming for fun!
