Rugby is a club sport at URI, which means that all are welcome; prior rugby experience, while helpful, is certainly not required. Many of the current players began playing at URI with no experience whatsoever. Every player is given the opportunity to learn the game and coaching by the staff. We attempt to get every player some playing time in games at an appropriate level. Very little is required in terms of gear to play rugby – at least one training jersey, shorts and socks, approved cleats (most soccer cleats are acceptable) and a mouth guard.
If you are interested in playing rugby at URI, contact one of the coaches or officers listed on the web page.
