About the Club
We play teams from all over Virginia and some in North Carolina. The fall semester focuses on standard fifteens rugby. Matches take place every Saturday. First comes an A-side match, which is followed by a B-side match. Because rugby is best learned in real-world situations, anyone who does not play in the A-side match will play in the B-side match. In the spring semester, we focus on sevens rugby. This team is highly selective and travels to tournaments that determine who goes to the National Small College Rugby Organization Tournament in May. Anyone who does not play sevens still plays fifteens matches on weekends. Rugby is a physical sport, but we take a disciplined approach to teaching proper technique in order to promote safety and effectiveness. We have a team trainer at all practices and games to observe help if needed. Players take care of their own and always look for ways to improve their own and teammates’ performance.
