Training for our spring season is well underway for both teams, as we prepare to finish our 2013/14 regular season schedule, various friendlies and appearances at tournaments including Hofstra University's Gohring Tournament and The Jersey Cup.

Training is open to players of all positions and skill levels, and we welcome newcomers, even those completely new to the game of rugby. If you have any questions, you can contact us directly via Facebook .
