JOIN THE AMERICAN RUGBY TRADITION

We are committed to introducing rugby to new players and helping experienced players improve their skills and knowledge.

HOW TO GET STARTED

The Rochester Aardvarks welcome all new, previous, and current rugby players to join us during our practice sessions. We welcome all skill levels to our club and will strive to make you a successful rugby player through conditioning, drills, and coaching. If you can run, catch, kick, tackle or handle a ball, you can play rugby. The diverse nature of the 15 positions on a rugby team allows most participants to easily adopt the game. Experience is not needed, as we have a solid core of players who can teach you the fundamentals of rugby.
