New Players

Updated Wednesday January 9, 2019 by Phoenix Rugby Club.

Join us for practice.  Our first practice of the season is Thursday, January 3, 2019 beginning at 8:30 p.m. till 10 p.m. at Alpharetta North Park, 13450 Cogburn Rd, Alpharetta, GA.  Most players arrive between 8 p.m. - 8:15 p.m.  We encourage all interested new players to participate in two of our practices before registering to see what rugby is all about.  We have upcoming tournaments in October so all players must be registered to participate.

For Winter/Spring 2018 practices, Phoenix Rugby practices on Tuesday & Thursday nights at 8:30 pm at Field #2, North Park, 13450 Cogburn Rd, Alpharetta, GA. This is the field across the street from our normal Field/Turf#1 which is being updated.

Please contact us so we can keep you up to date on developments and make sure you have all the information you need to make the best possible decision.

We would also encourage you to check out our FAQs page for more information and our About Rugby page that inlcudes both Basics of Rugby and some great Videos .

The important thing to consider here is that the player has fun with rugby & he/she is going to enjoy the sport.

The Rugby Basics and Rugby Videos pages contain a lot of very useful information about Rugby. You might also want to visit the USA Rugby website (including rugby scholarships). Check it out. Be sure to read to the Spectators Guide to Rugby on our web site under About Rugby. It will quickly give insight into how rugby is played & the laws governing the sport.

All of our coaches are volunteers & experienced in the sport of rugby. Emphasis is placed upon learning how to play the sport safely, but bear in mind it is a contact sport. That’s one of the reasons why players enjoy rugby.

Let your son/daughter try rugby out for themselves.

We look forward to meeting you & your son/daughter.
