Regular season 2017-2018

 

Season

U8 - U14 will start practice mid November (exact date will be defined closer to the start of the season). We normally hold practices twice a week. Games begin early January and take place on Saturdays, excluding a few Bye weekends. The regular season ends mid-March. U14 may continue in play-offs until mid-April, if we qualify.

We anticipate that the practices will be Tuesday and Thursday nights under the lights at Cardiff Sports Park, but this will be determined closer to the start of the season.

U16-U18 will start practice end of February following the end of the High School rugby season (see below). The season ends mid-May, assuming we qualify for the play-offs.

Note for U16-U18

At the U16-U18 age brackets, there are some High Schools that offer rugby as a school sport, e.g., LCC. Club rugby that we participate in begins its practice and playing season after the High School rugby season finishes in the final week of February. Dragons U16-U18 teams will play their first games in early March with practice commencing once they are no longer playing High School rugby, or in mid-February if they did not play in the High School season.

Also note that the registration fee is different based on whether you played during the high-school season or not. The reason is that players who played in high-school are already registered with USA rugby for the year so the club does not need to play this fee, which is reflected in our registration fees.
