2011 2012 Team Phot

Rugby is a growing sport on college campuses. Currently, there are over 400 colleges that offer rugby as an activity for students to participate in. The men’s rugby club was founded in 1976 and is strongly supported by the Alumni Association.  A $1,000 rugby scholarship is offered annually by the Niagara Rugby Alumni Association.  The team plays on a full size grass rugby pitch with permanent goal post. In addition to the grass field, the rugby program will have access to a newly constructed turf field. In the fall of 2008, the rugby program moved from Division III to Division II. The move is based on the success of the program. The team competed in and won the 2008 New York State Rugby Conference Collegiate Championship in April of 2008. Tryouts are usually the first week of September. The team competes in the New York State Rugby Conference www.nysrugby.org.
