Northwestern students play rugby.

Northwestern College Rugby Club

The Northwestern College Rugby Club was founded in 2016 and competes with other small colleges in the National Small College Rugby Organization (NSCRO). We field both men's and women's teams, in partnership with the Dordt College Rugby Club.

Rugby is one of the world's most popular sports and is the fastest growing sport in the United States. The ancestor of American football, rugby is a running, passing and tackle sport that combines elements familiar to students who have played football, soccer, basketball and other more mainstream sports. Rugby is the epitome of a team sport.

If you saw rugby in the Rio Olympics then we encourage you to come try it out. We welcome everyone, and no experience is necessary! Come to a practice session or two and you might find yourself hooked. For more information contact the coaches or captains. Also, visit our Facebook page.

Head Coach: Tyler Scott
Tyler first learned about rugby when visiting Australia in the summer of 2005. Upon returning to the States, he promptly looked up his local club in Greenville, S.C., and played for them until moving to Orange City in 2015. Tyler is excited to introduce the game of rugby to the Northwestern Community.
