Welcome to Fort Hunt Rugby
Welcome to Fort Hunt Rugby!
Come play rugby with us!


 

We are a youth rugby club established in 2006, offering a program of fall rugby developmental activities, an organized spring state-level and regional competition leading to possible national and regional all-star opportunities, and a summer recreational rugby sevens season for boys and girls high school (U-19) and middle school/youth (7th/8th grade, 5th/6th grade) players.  We are the 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2017 boys Virginia state high school champions, and are the #2 in the US as a boys high school club program, having lost in the national high school final in late May 2017.  Our girls team is the Virginia state champion runner-up in 2012, 2013, and again in 2014.

Our purpose is to introduce youth--and parents/supporters--to the lifetime sport of Rugby Union Football, an outstanding and immensely fun sport to play and to watch that offers players improved strength, fitness, and coordination, and teaches decisionmaking, teamwork, comraderie, closely controlled and focused tackle contact, in an environment emphasizing fun, high-level competition, tradition, sportsmanship and respect for teammates, opponents, and officials.
