what our student-athletes are saying


Play Rugby isn’t just a rugby team, it’s a family. The community has done a lot for me and even assisted in creating a blueprint for my future. It’s made me a better person, a better player, and a harder worker.

- Rashad


The biggest thing I learned in the Academy is ‘Go Forward’. No matter what, just keep going, don’t stop. I’m not giving up no matter what the circumstance is, no matter what is going on, no matter what comes to life. Just keep going.

- Lynette


Something that makes me excited about coming to practice, is the family that Play Rugby offers. It’s more than just teammates; I see us as brothers, coaches...people I can talk to, even after practice.
