Q: What if I’ve never played rugby before?

Q: What if I’m out of shape?


A: Playing will help get you into shape.  We have players of all ages and levels of fitness.  We stretch and warm up at every practice and have suggested work out routines for the gym.



Q: What if I don’t think I have the time?


A: We only practice once a week on the weekend for an hour and a half right now. Come try it and then see if you can work it into your schedule.

A: That’s great. Bring him along. He can play or he can watch. He’ll have a good time!
