Field practices are held every Monday and Wednesday at Baker Field on the soccer/rugby pitch. School-provided shuttle buses are available for transport at 7:20 and 8:00 pm on Amsterdam and 117th street every Monday and Wednesday. If shuttle buses are unavailable, or you fail to reach one in time, take the 1 train to the 215st station and walk north three blocks to 218 st. and the Baker Athletic Complex will be on your right. Practices begin at 8:00 pm sharp!
Well, first things first. Rugby is a fun sport, and although most people picture burly men bleeding and clawing each other, rugby can be a very safe sport. I emphasize CAN as the safety of rugby arises from a full and complete understanding of the functioning rules of rugby. And yes, they seem many at first, but they are almost all natural and extremely important.

As rugby is a club sport, the eligibility requirements are more nebulous in comparison with other collegiate sports. Here is a link to the most important restrictions: Eligibility.
However, even if you are uncertain about your eligibility, come and try out the sport. We promise not to hit you too hard...at first.
