The competitive USF Men’s Rugby Club has an incredible history making the Elite 8 for three years straight from 2015-2017.  The Club continues to pursue excellence through tradition and hard work.  The sport of rugby combines the physicality of American football, the stamina of soccer, and the coordination of basketball to create the ultimate sport. With fifteen players on the field, there’s a position for all body types, both big and small. If you enjoy a full contact sport or are looking to try something new, then USF Rugby is a good place to start!

The USF Men's Rugby Club is currently rebuilding their team, and hopes to participate in the Northern California Men's College Division II [governed by the National Small College Rugby Organization] league in the future. Currently, the Club consists of weekly practices and hopes to participate in upcoming tournaments.

​USF Student Testimonials:
“I joined my Club Sport because I have a background in football and wanted to compete in a similar contact sport again since I missed it.  My favorite Club Sport memory was going to the Jesuit cup tournament spring 2019 and competing with my fellow teammates.  The best part about my Club is the goofiness of the players. We all get along so well and have a great time no matter what.

Club sports means a fun, yet competitive way to get active during school! Also a great way to meet new people and make memories.  If I could give advice to future Club Sports participants I would say it doesn't hurt to come out and give it a shot!  All of our clubs are very welcoming to all levels of experience and skill.  If you are looking for a contact sport at USF, Mens Rugby is the way to go!  We would love to see you out on the field.” - Timothy Jackson [USF Graduate]
