2021 State Champs
Tucson Blackbirds Rugby Football Club
2011 marked the inaugural year of the Tucson Magpies U19 Team, The Blackbirds. Lead by head coach Tim Pappas, created one of the top youth programs in Arizona. The U19 program is a great way to get kids into the game early, and assure them much future success later on as a Magpie.
Now led by coaches Aaron Abrego, Adam Fernandez, Blake Nesbit and Head Coach Mark Marrero, the Blackbirds are looking to earn the crown as the best rugby team in Arizona.
