Rugby combines the physicality of American football, the stamina of soccer, and the coordination of basketball to create the ultimate sports challenge. With fifteen players on the field, there’s a position for all body types, both big and small. If you miss the camaraderie of High School sports, enjoy a full contact sport, or if you just want to try something new, then USF Rugby is right for you.
The USF Men's Rugby team participates in the Northern California Men's College Division 2 league governed by the National Small College Rugby Organization. The typical season consists of practices and scrimmages in the fall and approximately 3 home games and 3 away games in the spring. Currently the USF team competes against Santa Rosa Junior College, Sonoma State, St. Mary's, University of the Pacific, Sierra College, Cal Maritime Academy & Monterrey Bay.
Additionally, the club attends and participates in the USA CRC Sevens tournament in Las Vegas.
The USF Men's Rugby Club is a member of USA Rugby and is coached by Rod McLeod.
