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:

  1. Cleats: 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.
  2. Shorts: Wear either rugby shorts (made of thick material) or gym shorts.
  3. 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 for practice.
  4. Mouth Guard: 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.
  5. Fluids: 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.
  6. Towel: Please bring a towel to practice.
  7. 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.
