Welcoming newcomers to the sport, as well as experienced players, coaches and fans.
Practice for the spring season will begin on Feb. 10 at Cardozo High School at 6:45 p.m. Keep working on your off-season fitness as we're hitting the ground running. If you're not fit, you'll be left behind.
How to Get There
Cardozo High School is located at 13th and Florida Ave., NW. The nearest Metro is the U St./Cardozo/African-American Civil War Memorial station (Green Line).
Personal Equipment Needs
The following is a list of items that you will need for outdoor rugby practices:
A "rugby boot" or soccer cleat is acceptable. Cleats must not contain the single "toe" cleat or hard plastic
blades (although rubber blades are legal). It is not wise to wear plain sneakers for practice. The fast
pace as well as frequent stops and starts and changes of direction required in rugby can cause injury if you do not
have sufficient traction. The risk of slipping and losing footing is great when not wearing cleats.
Wear either rugby shorts (made of thick material) or gym shorts.
T-shirt or Jersey:
Wearing a rugby jersey for practice will help you become comfortable with wearing one for matches, but it is not necessary
You must purchase a mouth guard from an area sporting goods store. You will need to follow the directions on the back
of the mouth guard package to conform the shape of the mouth guard to your teeth.
Please remember to bring adequate fluids, in the form of water or a sports drink, such as Gatorade. You will be working
your body hard for two or more hours, and you will need to replace fluids.
Please bring a towel to practice.
Change of clothes:
The team usually socializes after practice at area restaurants or pubs. A quick change to a clean shirt and shorts or
jeans usually concludes practice.
