We are a youth rugby club established in 2006, offering a program of fall rugby developmental activities, an organized spring state-level and regional competition leading to possible national and regional all-star opportunities, and a summer recreational rugby 7s season for boys and girls high school (U-19) and girls middle school/youth (7th/8th grade, 5th/6th grade) players (no boys MS at this time).  We are the 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2019 boys Virginia state high school champions, and are currently ranked the #7 in the US as a boys high school club program.  Our boys fresh/soph team is ranked #2 in the country...among state all-star teams.  Our girls team is the Virginia state champion runner-up in 2012, 2013, and again in 2014.

Our purpose is to introduce youth--and parents/supporters--to the lifetime sport of Rugby Union Football, an outstanding and immensely fun sport to play and to watch, which offers players improved strength, fitness, and coordination, and teaches discipline, decisionmaking, teamwork, comraderie, closely controlled and focused tackle contact, in an environment emphasizing fun, high-level competition, tradition, sportsmanship and respect for teammates, opponents, and officials.
Looking for Middle School Coaches: we have equipment and full structure/organization in place to support our own dedicated middle school teams for girls and boys, but we need coaches.  No experience necessary--we will teach you.  If you'd like to run 7th/8th grade boys or girls rugby, please contact us.
