Rugby is played all year around at Reed College. Our teams compete in the Pacific Northwest Rugby Football Union. The Pacific Northwest Region includes college teams from Oregon, Washington and Idaho and Northern California.
It's important to remember that almost no one comes to Reed knowing how to play rugby. All of our players have learned the game while attending Reed. Rugby players have a unique opportunity to learn a new sport and to share the "Ruggers" culture while attending Reed.
Touch Rugby Training/Practice
New this year to Men's and Women's rugby will be the option of Touch Rugby training and practice. Touch Rugby is a valuable training technique for contact Rugby since it develops the basic skills needed to play any form of Rugby focusing on passing, drawing the defender, running without the ball and utilizing space. Plus the best benefit of Touch Rugby is increased physical fitness and fun!
These practices are offered Wednesday's on the Rugby Pitch from 4pm-6pm and instructed by Scott Grice. Please come out and check out this fantastic opportunity to experience the world of Rugby.
