Rugby is the ultimate team sport combining athleticism, speed, ball handling, evasion, contact, kicking, and most of all fun! Yorkville Rugby will be led by Coach Chris Mattina, who was born and raised on the Upper East Side. Coach Chris currently plays at the highest level of the sport as a member of Rugby United New York in Major League Rugby, and has been a member of Team USA Rugby 7s team on the World Circuit. He is also the founder of the CM Rugby Academy which brings personal speed and skills training to youth, high school, and college Rugby players in the NYC area. Coach Chris looks forward to spreading the awesome game of Rugby at Yorkville, and teaching it at a high level to all ages!
