To get started, you'll just need a pair of soccer cleats (or rugby cleats if you prefer), and you'll need some sturdy cotton rugby shorts before your first game.
How much does it cost?
You'll need to be CIPP registered ($50/year), pay club dues (about $60/year for new players).
How do I learn the game?
Very few people in the United States grow up playing rugby. Most of the players on our team learned to play while in college or later. If you're athletic and put some effort into learning the basics, you can be competitive in our league. Simply put, JUST SHOW UP!
