Men’s and Women’s Rugby

Rugby is one of the fastest-growing club sports in America with more than 32,000 college players registered with National College Rugby.

Emory & Henry College added non-NCAA competitive rugby to enhance the vibrant culture of the college community and to start a new tradition. The team travels and plays at home against other institutions on a collegiate level.

The club at Emory & Henry is open to tryout to compete against other college club teams from around the region.

In 2019, Emory & Henry formed its first women’s rugby team playing non-NCAA intercollegiate rugby in the Cardinal Athletic Conference. Their motto is “Never Give Up. Never Surrender.” The team is a member of National College Rugby (NCR) and is a group of powerful women devoted to teamwork and dedication both on and off the field.
