Welcome to the 2018 Fall Season Registration with the Fox Valley Predator Rugby Club.
The goal of the Fox Valley Predator Rugby Club is to introduce young men and women to the game and traditions of rugby that we, as coaches, have enjoyed so much over the years. The game of rugby is a legendary game that mixes strength, speed and agility. It is a game that will forever welcome athletes of any size and shape. You will find that rugby is similar to sports you’ve played in the past as it involves ball handling, running, kicking and tackling. Successful rugby does require fitness, but first and foremost it requires a person who is ready, willing and able to give it a go.
Rugby is also a social game where people make lasting friendships. Players compete vigorously but leave their difficulties on the field. Traveling and touring has always been a big part of the social aspect of the game. Teams almost always come together after every match for a bit of food and some camaraderie. At home matches, our club will host the visiting team with food and beverages. The club will provide the main dish; players are expected to bring something to contribute (side dish, chips, pop, dessert, etc.).
Throughout the world, people play rugby from grade school through adulthood. We refer to rugby as a “life sport” because men and women continue to participate in rugby long after they leave high school. Today, USA Rugby is made up of several Territorial Unions and 37 Local Area Unions and supports more than 200,000 members. The fastest growth in USA Rugby has been in High School aged clubs. Chicagoland has seen tremendous growth in recent years. If you want to play rugby after high school, it will be available to you in college clubs and in men’s and women’s clubs all around the US and abroad.
