Rugby club holds sign-up

The Essex County Youth Rugby Football Club is holding an open sign-up and informational meeting for all U-19 (15- to 18-year-olds) and U-15 (12- to 14-year-olds) Thursday night at 7 at the West Newbury Town Annex, 381 Main St.

The Essex Bulldogs are the defending 2012 U-19 Club Division Champions and are looking for new players. Athletes who love a fast-paced, action-packed sport may be interested in trying rugby. Coaches are experienced players who enjoy introducing and teaching rugby to children of all ages.


Rugby Sevens will debut as an Olympic sport at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. The International Olympic Committee voted to include the sport at the IOC Congress on Oct. 9, 2009.
