Looking to Join the UConn Men’s Rugby Club?

Fall 2020 Prospective Players

There will be no practice for Fall 2020 as per official UConn guidelines, but this is the typical Fall practice schedule for your reference:

Tuesday’s 6-8pm at Depot Campus Field

Wednesday’s 8-10pm at Depot Campus Field

Thursday’s 6-8pm at Depot Campus Field

Rides to the pitch are provided by current players. Please be outside of the Visitor’s Center at least 20 minutes before a scheduled tryout/practice time.

All players of any experience level are welcome to attend practice until tryouts are concluded. This semester there will be no tryouts or practices due to COVID-19 regulations. In place of regular practice, we are training independently and in small groups to become stronger and fitter for the future season, as well as to hone our technical abilities. We are hoping for at least a partial return in Spring 2021, but we are waiting for official correspondence from UConn to specify what we are able to do.

If you are interested in trying out for the UConn Men’s Rugby Team please reach out using the Join Now feature on the Recruiting page or through this google form.
