Ben Gallant, Administrative Coach
Ben has worked with the USI Rugby club since 2012 and provides financial and administrative guidance as one of the coaches. He also helps with leadership training and facilitating relationships between the team and our school administration.
Experienced and non-experienced players are welcome to try out.
We practice on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 4-6pm, and also on most Saturdays when we don't have a game to play. Come out in athletic clothes and bring cleats, a mouth guard, and a water bottle (if you have them). We will introduce you to the sport at your own pace.
Complete the steps below as soon as possible, pay your dues, and you're set to play in your first rugby match!
Please know that no one will be denied membership or participation because of difficulty paying club dues. If you would like to setup a confidential payment arrangement, you may contact our Manager, Ben Gallant or our President, Jordan Cravens.
If you have any questions, please feel free to send us a message!
USI RUGBY GEAR:
Team jerseys are provided during matches. It's a good idea to wear a light colored or dark colored shirt to practice so we can easily divide into two teams. The only mandatory items from the list below (for matches) are cleats and navy socks. If you show up to an official match without these, you will not be permitted to play.
*Cleats: (called rugby "boots")
*If you have a pair of boots from a different sport, make sure there is no toe cleat. If there is one, a knife can take care of that!
Solid White shorts:
Solid Navy socks: (for matches)
*White compression shorts:
*Use of a cup is not recommended
