What we're about

WPG RFC is a men's rugby club in the DC metro area with practice and playing fields in Arlington and Alexandria. We welcome new and experienced players to a club that loves rugby and having fun. We like to drink beer, carry on, and have a habit of not being invited back to fancy establishments. Don't let rugby stereotypes dissuade you. It's not a blood sport and you're not too small to play. We're working professionals and some of us have kids. Matches are generally family and pet friendly and we make sure everyone has a chance to learn and prove themselves on the pitch. We have a competitive D3 side, a social D4 side and an Old Boys side as well. Practice is usually Tuesday and Thursday evening at various fields in the area. We can help with transportation. E-mail westpotrugby@gmail.com for more info. Alexandria, Arlington, Washington D.C.

15s Rugby Practice - New Players Welcome

West Potomac High School

Looking to dust off your boots or get into rugby for the first time? Then come on out to practice and meet the team! We field two teams in different divisions so we have a place for experienced veterans and players totally new to the game. Please bring a mouth guard, water and cleats with you. We will start at 8:30 PM sharp so please arrive early to get your cleats on and get prepared. Practices usually run 1.5 to 2 hours and begin with fitness/warm-up, move into individual skills development and finishes with set pieces and game situations. Please drive around back of the school and we will be on the small turf field to the north, not the stadium field. There are youth rugby and soccer teams which practice before us so please be aware of your surroundings and adjust your conduct as needed. If you need a ride to practice please comment below and we can coordinate pick-up from a metro station, likely Huntington.
