Loudoun Rugby Football Club

Loudoun Rugby Needs YOU!

We are looking for volunteers for both directors and executive board members for our 2022/2023 rugby season! Click here for more information. 

About Us

Overview

Loudoun Rugby is a member of USA Rugby at the national level and Rugby Virginia at the state level.  We generally follow USA Rugby's season, game-play, and age/grade guidance in order to provide a uniform experience that is comparable to the rest of the leagues in the United States.
 
Age/Grade/Teams
Our teams are constructed according to age level and are split between tag and tackle teams. 
 
Tackle
Boys/Girls Youth Tackle - U13
Boys/Girls Middle School Tackle - U15
Boys/Girls High School Tackle - U17, U19
Men's League
 
Tag
1/2 Co-ed Tag - U8
3/4 Co-ed Tag - U10
 
 
Coaches
All of our coaches are USA Rugby certified.  Some are parents who volunteered because their son or daughter loved the game and they wanted to lend a hand.  Others played rugby when they were kids, played rugby in college, have relationships with players/coaches on international teams, and continue to play in the "old timers" leagues. We are always looking for new coaches and we can help you get all your qualifications.
 
Gameplay and Equipment
During the spring season we play 15's.  This involves 15 players on each team (eight forwards, a scrum half, and six backs) playing two forty-minute halves.  If we are scheduled to play multiple games, then the game time is reduced.  The only equipment that players need to bring are rugby-approved cleats (check with your coach, but some Football cleats are not legal for rugby) and a mouth guard.  The club will provide your game shirt.  There are no pads/helmets.

Loudoun Rugby Partners with DC Young Glory

Loudoun Rugby was recently featured on Fox 5 News for their partnership with Washington DC's Professional rugby team Old Glory. 

Making Football Safer

Recently, a team of Loudoun Rugby coaches lead a training session, but it wasn't for rugby... it was for tackle football. Loudoun Rugby and Central Loudoun Youth Football League have partnered to help grow the game for both forms of football. In one session, we were able to train 20 coaches and over 200 boys and girls on proper rugby-style tackling in the "Heads Out Tackling Clinic." Below is a link to the 2nd of a 4-part series produced by WTOP Sports that discusses how the two sports are helping each other.

Can better tackling technique make football safer?
