Looking to join/start a rugby club...?

In monitoring the meta-data for this blog, it seems that most of our hits come from regular readers who know what their looking for (i.e. they are searching for the recent scores for existing girls high school clubs). However, over the last month, I've noticed a trend of people searching for girls rugby, but inserting new community names, like New Berlin or Kenosha (where there are currently no clubs in existence). Does this mean that there are people in these communities who are interested in joining or starting a a high school (or U19) rugby club for local girls?

I want to put out two options for players looking for a club:

  • If you are interested in joining a club should know that, with the exception of Pius IX, Catholic Memorial High School and Divine Savior Holy Angels (which are all school affiliated), all the other rugby teams are clubs, which will accept members from areas regardless of residency. As a league, we encourage players to join the team in their local community, if one exists. But, if there is no team in your community, feel free to contact the coach of the team which is most convenient for you to learn more. If you are having problems finding information on a club, feel free to leave a comment here, and we'll post information about a particular club in response.
  • If you are interested in forming a new club in your community, post a comment here and we can assist in establishing a new club. While this can be challenging because it is sometimes difficult to find coaches.

If you're out there in Wisconsin and want to play rugby, let us know.
