Are you serious about playing rugby in college? Collegiate rugby is the best way to continue to compete at the highest level, make the best friends you will ever have, and improve your chances of being identified for a national team. For aspiring collegiate rugby players, as rugby continues to grow at an exponential rate in the U.S., you have more options than ever to find a college that will fit both your academic AND your rugby needs!

As the number of Varsity and Elite Club Rugby programs grow and are given athletic recruitment slots, players MUST be aware how much a student athlete’s academic record play a role in their recruitment chances. Why recruit a player who wouldn’t even last a quarter at their school? Good advice for any rugby player looking to don a collegiate rugby jersey is not only succeeding on the pitch, but in the classroom. The stronger you are in your studies, the higher the likelihood of being recruited to a top tier rugby program.
