WE LOVE RUGBY

The Barbarians Youth Rugby Club, based in Wrentham Massachusetts is dedicated to bringing the great sport of rugby to boys and girls of all experience levels from kindergarten through high school.  
Officially founded in 2013 our primary focus is to provide a safe and fun environment for players to enjoy the game. We develop player skills as we work to instill a sense of respect for referees, coaches, fellow players and the game. 

We are proud members of:

Massachusetts Youth Rugby Organization (MYRO), a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote physical fitness, teamwork and leadership skills through the game of rugby. MYRO is a part of USA Rugby and supports all levels of youth rugby from elementary school through high school ages. 

USA Rugby is the national governing body for the sport of rugby in America and a full sport member of the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) and World Rugby. 

"Rugby is a game where working as a cohesive team is much more important than individual skill."

Our Values

SAFETY FIRST

We teach our players the skills and techniques that keep our sport safe and we never play if safety cannot be ensured (poor pitch, unsafe weather etc) 

TEAMWORK

Scores are created by the team, wins are celebrated by the team, and we support each other in everything we do.

FUN

Playing rugby is one of the best experiences that a child can have.  Everyone plays, everyone contributes, everyone has fun.

RESPECT

Create a sense of respect for the game, the players, and the referee.  There is no tolerance for talking back to the referee or showing disrespect to other players.

Centrally located in Wrentham, MA

Our home pitch is conveniently located at the William A. Rice Recreation Complex. We have club members from Wrentham, Franklin, Mansfield, Walpole, Milford, Norfolk, Plainville, Medway, Bellingham and as far away as Providence.

Our History

We've been playing rugby in Wrentham since 2013. Our club has come a long way since then.

Our Culture

We are an inclusive club - players, parents, family all participate and are all part of the Barbarian horde. We encourage members to grow at their own pace, striving for their best! Sportsmanship is of utmost importance. We place participant behavior ahead of winning at all levels.

Finally: we are passionate about rugby and we love to introduce the greatest team sport in the world to all those willing to try. 



"At the heart of Rugby is a unique ethos which it retains to this day. Not only is the Game played to the Laws, but within the spirit of the laws.

​Through discipline, control and mutual self-respect, a fellowship and sense of fair play are forged, defining Rugby as the game it is."
