Why Play Rugby?
Because Rugby is one of the most popular international sports in the world and has been steadily gaining popularity in the U.S. Although it is becoming more and more common, Rugby players are a special and rare breed of athlete who enjoy a fast-paced, challenging, and fun team sport. Rugby provides the athlete with both physical and mental challenges. Rugby also helps athletes improve their fitness and overall health.
Besides all of those reasons... RUGBY IS FUN!
The main goal of the Western Flames is to have fun. We don’t make cuts, and it’s not all about winning either. Sure winning is fun, and we do it often! But we also know how to have fun off of the pitch (a.k.a. the Rugby field). Every year we travel around the northwest to Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and throughout Washington to compete against other Universities. In addition to our league games we take special trips to other destinations which have included San Francisco, Santa Barbara, and Boston/Providence.
So get in shape, have fun, impress your friends, take the challenge - JOIN RUGBY!
