Training/Play Update, 27 April 2021

We are well into training and play for both boys and girls.  Register and come on out.

The Warriors will attending the boys national high school championship tournament in Kansas City in mid-June.  Training will continue through May and into June in preparation for our return to this tournament.

The following remains in effect:

     Registration is open.  ALL players must register with the club on this site before practicing.  Players/Parents may visit a training session to see if this is a good fit, then must register if returning.  The fee currently is $100, with all players expected to pay their full fee immediately.

     All players must register with USA Rugby via SportLomo, as a "Fort Hunt HS" player.

     Unless otherwise stated, the location for training is West Potomac High School, 6500 Quander Road, Alexandria, VA 22307.  Coaches will out specifics on days, times, and locations.

     All players are encouraged to reach out to new players, interested existing players, and interested friends to bring new players into our program. We always need new great people to join our program.  Novices are welcome; we will teach you to play.  There are no tryouts--everyone is on the team, and every one plays.

     Wear your mask, bring your own water, stay separate, and follow coach/staff instructions.

     Right now we are offering a program of rugby for boys/girls HS (9th-12th grade), boys/girls MS (7th/8th), and girls youth (5th/6th) for 2020-2021.

     The current fee for all levels is $100.  This is less than previous years’ fees, due to the covid-19 disruptoins.  We may have to request additional fees at some point, depending on how things develop.  We will not exceed a $200 fee for the 2020-2021 rugby year.

     All players must register with USA Rugby/Rugby Virginia via the Sportlomo website.  If you have previously registered with USA Rugby, use those log-on credentials and simply renew as a "Fort Hunt HS" player.  If not previously registered, just create a new registration for your player(s).

     Check this space and the Gators and Wariors pages on Facebook for updates.  The POC is John Dacey, 301-503-3377, rugby007@aol.com.

Come play rugby with us!

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 or Youth at this time).  We are the 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2019 boys Virginia state high school champions, and have been nationally ranked in the US top 15 since 2018.  Our boys fresh/soph team was last ranked #2 in the country...among state all-star teams.  Our girls HS team is the Virginia state champion runner-up in 2012, 2013, and again in 2014.

Our mission 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 dedicated Fort Hunt middle school teams for girls and boys, but we need coaches to make it happen.  No experience necessary--we will teach you.  If you'd like to run 7th/8th grade boys or girls rugby, please contact us.
