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 currently field a women's team.
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.
We welcome everyone to try it out; no experience is necessary! Come to a practice session or two and you might find yourself hooked. For more information, contact Coach Tyler Scott or the captains.
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 to join Northwestern's physics faculty. Tyler has enjoyed introducing the game of rugby to the Northwestern community.
