Welcome to Fort Hunt Rugby
Welcome to Fort Hunt Rugby!
Come play rugby with us!


We are a youth rugby club established in 2006, offering a program of fall rugby developmental activities, an organized spring state-level competition, and a summer recreational rugby sevens season for boys and girls high school (U-19) and middle school/youth (7th/8th grade, 4th/6th grade) players.  We are the 2012, 2014, and 2016 boys Virginia state high school champions, and are the 2015 state runner-up, currently ranked #3 in the US as a boys high school club program.  Our girls team is the Virginia state champion runner-up in 2012, 2013, and again in 2014.

Our purpose is to introduce youth--and parents--to the lifetime sport of Rugby Union Football, an outstanding and immensely fun sport to play and to watch that offers improved strength, fitness, and coordination, and teaches decisionmaking, teamwork, comraderie, closely controlled and focused tackle contact, in an environment of fun, competition, tradition, sportsmanship and respect for teammates, opponents, and officials.
