East Coast Rugby Club

Starting in the fall of 2019 the rugby clinics will be rolled into a rookie rugby club named the East Coast Rugby Club. The Club in the fall will run for eight weeks and will have focus on a more competitive setting yet still teaching the basics of the sport of rugby. This will include two rugby tournaments and several scrimmages with another club. The players will be CIIPPed through USA Rugby. A paper copy of the CIPP form will be provided at the first practice for parents. Please read through the membership website.

The East Coast Rugby Club will be a non-contact rookie rugby club. The goal of the club is to grow the sport of rugby in Delaware.
