Winter League Registration!
Registration for our Yorkshire Winter 2018/2019 Leagues is now open, with leagues scheduled to kick-off from Tuesday 6th November.
As part of the Winter schedule we are excited to announce the opening of 2 new Leagues on brand new 3G pitches. The new Leagues will be Leeds - Horsforth (Yarnbury RFC) on a Monday and North Leeds (The Grammar School At Leeds) on a Tuesday.
The Leeds - Horsforth (Yarnbury RFC) league will replace the current Leeds - Alwoodley league on a Monday night and the North Leeds (The Grammar School At Leeds) will replace the Leeds - Cross Gates League on a Tuesday. Both new venues are a short drive away from the venues they are replacing and offer a much better quality of pitch. In addition to holding free taster sessions at both new venues for new players, we will also be holding a free Turn Up and Play session for existing players to come and give the new venue a try. For details of the free tasters click here and for details of the free turn up and play sessions click here.
The following Winter Leagues will be running: Leeds - Horsforth (Yarnbury RFC) (Monday), Wakefield - Wakefield Sports Club (Monday), Bradford & Bingley (Tuesday), North Leeds (The Grammar School At Leeds) (Tuesday), Leeds - Weetwood Sports Park (Wednesday), Bradford - Southfield Grange (Thursday).
All Winter Leagues will be 10 games long. Where Leagues were previously fewer games in Autumn, the registration fee for the League has been adjusted to account for there being an extra two games in the Winter League.
All leagues will be played in the mixed format, with 6-a-side leagues consisting of four males and two females while in 7-a-side leagues teams will consist of four males and three females. Although most leagues are for players of all standards, the Leeds - Weetwood Sports Park league will be running both an A Grade division and a Beginner/Intermediate division.
Registration is open to whole teams, part-teams (groups) and individual players who'd like to be placed in a team. Team places are available strictly on a first to pay the deposit basis until a league sells out.
All leagues come with post-match social venues so that you can socialise with your team mates and opposition. Specific details for the leagues vary, therefore please see the links in the table below for specific information on each league including pricing. For more general information on Tag Rugby and how our leagues work, please watch our ‘What is Tag Rugby?’ video to the right or see our FAQ section.
A number of venues reached Capacity in Autumn and we expect demand for Winter places to also be high. We strongly recommend registering and confirming your place as early as possible to ensure you secure your place at your chosen league. Registration deadlines for all Leagues is 6 days before your chosen League starts or when the League becomes full. Existing teams have a priority deadline of 14 days prior to the league starting to re register for their existing league, see the section containing details of the Existing Team Priority Deadline below for more details.
If you don't currently play and would like to give Tag Rugby a Try before deciding whether to join a league or if you know somebody who might be interested in giving it a try, we have a number of Free Taster Sessions scheduled for the end of August.

Due to strong demand for places in a number of our leagues we have put the following rules are in place to ensure existing teams have every opportunity to rejoin their current league. The existing team priority deadline for Yorkshire Leagues is 14 days before the league starts.
During this priority window we will allocate places in a league to teams who have registered and paid the £100 deposit confirming their place, based on the following priority system.
1. Existing teams who are currently playing at this league in the most recent season.
2. Teams moving from other Try Tag Rugby leagues where a league is not being run in the new season. Or teams which registered and paid a deposit at this venue for the previous season but missed out due the league being oversubscribed.
3. Whole teams of individually registered players or teams that previously played at the respective league within the previous three seasons.
4. New teams or teams looking to move league.
Where multiple teams fit in a category above, they will be prioritised in order of when they paid the £100 deposit to confirm their place.
Once the priorty deadline has passed registrations will continue to be taken on a first to register and pay the deposit basis until the league becomes full.
Tag Rugby Shorts
Official Try Tag Rugby shorts or Try Tag Rugby ladies' tights (or International Tag Federation approved brands) must be purchased before taking to the pitch in all Try Tag Rugby leagues.
Tag shorts can always be bought from Try Tag Rugby staff by paying £12 in cash at all our leagues or events. Tag shorts (£12) and tights (£23) can also be purchased in our online shop for postal delivery. If you already have a pair of Tag Rugby shorts or Tag Rugby tights, please note due to safety reasons (ie length of the shorts being longer than the tags) and consistency (ie strength and location of the Velcro patch) the only other brands of Tag shorts or Tag tights we allow in our leagues are brands sanctioned by the International Tag Federation (ITF) such are Oztag, SAS (NZ Tag Football) and ITRA (Ireland). Your shorts must have the Try Tag Rugby logo or the logo of one of the other ITF organisations on them to be allowed to be worn in our leagues. Homemade shorts, any other brands of shorts (both UK made or abroad) and Tag Rugby belts are strictly not allowed on safety and consistency grounds!
Weekend Tournaments, Festivals & Social Events
Try Tag Rugby Yorkshire and Try Tag Rugby are also running a number of weekend tournaments and festivals throughout the year. If you are interested in attending these events, please click here for details.
As the number of teams in our leagues continues to grow, we are on the lookout for additional referees. All levels of experience are welcome including those who have never refereed before. We will provide free training where required. Once trained up you can referee as little as one game a night or multiple games 4 nights a week. For further details please click here.
