Programs that provide opportunities for people of all ages to learn, become competitive in and enjoy rugby, a game similar to football in which play is continuous without time-outs or substitutions which features kicking, dribbling, lateral passing, and tackling but no forward passing. The programs may provide coaching assistance to help participants play efficiently and work together as a team, and are often organized into leagues, i.e., groups of teams that are formed to play one another in organized competitions. Access to a rugby field and necessary equipment, uniforms, if necessary, and referees for games may also be available.
