The American University Rugby Football Club (AURFC) is the oldest continuously-active club sport at American University. Rugby is the only real contact sport on campus. As a group, AURFC is dedicated wholeheartedly to the sport of rugby. A member of USA Rugby, the Mid-Atlantic Rugby Football Union and the Potomac Rugby Union, AURFC strives both to introduce new players to the sport and to hone the skills of seasoned ruggers. Competing in Division II collegiate rugby, AURFC has two active Union 15 sides during both semesters and offers informal summer 7s as well. AURFC is as international as the sport of rugby itself and prides itself on lasting alumni connections. The fall season features matches against Georgetown, Catholic, George Washington, St. Mary's College, and Johns Hopkins. In the spring, we play a variety of tournaments and friendly games. Practice is twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Fort Reno Park in Tenleytown. Games are on Saturdays, and each consists of two 40-minute halves. AUFRC usually plays more than one game, so everyone will get a run. It's a great way to get in excellent shape and work out your aggression. The team functions as both a sport and a social club. So if you're interested in joining, contact one of the members. Anyone is welcome to join, and no experience is necessary. AURFC welcomes all comers, and encourage you to see the website for the latest news, contact information, alumni postings and more, http://www.aurugby.com/index.html. If you are interested in playing in the fall, and have not been added to the listserv, contact Geoff Winston at Gw8607a@gmail.com or Chris Dame at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added.
