Rugby practices are held every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday at The Yard on James Island (directions below), or at Gadsdenboro park downtown from 4:30pm-6pm. We accept all levels of experience, and encourage those who never have to try this amazing game. Practice times and location do vary depending on the season/time of year so please reach out to our coach or club president here if you are interested in coming out!
Never played rugby before? No problem! In fact, most collegiate rugby players have never even seen the game before college. Come out to practice with us- we’ll teach you the game. The CofC Rugby Club is composed primarily of former high school wrestlers, football players, and soccer players, with several starters having two years or less experience.
Directions to The Yard from Downtown:
The field is located at 863 Riverland Drive Charleston, SC. Take Calhoun St. to James Island Connector. Right at end of Connector. Left at 1st light. Left when road ends at stop sign. Right onto gravel road with sign that says CofC parks and rec. You have arrived.
We do not hold tryouts! Anyone that shows up with a willingness to play and is in good standing with the club will make the team. We accept players all throughout both seasons, better late than never!
