Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is home to the Rugby Club, a group of students who share a common interest in the sport. The associate’s team is composed of half Prescott (players who are not Embry-Riddle students )and half Embry-Riddle club players, and they compete against other ranked teams.

Sarah Greening, the Women’s Tram Back Captain and Rugby Club’s student liaison, said members get “to join a sports team that requires less time than a typical sport club and can make a lot of new friends.”

This season, the Rugby Club men’s team will play nine games and the women’s team will play four. Two of these games will be at the Embry-Riddle campus, on the lower recreation field.

“I joined because I had played a lot of sports but had never played rugby and it seemed like a lot of fun,” Greening told Horizons, “I really love the team and the people on it. They are all super supportive and so much fun to be around.”

Embry-Riddle Rugby Club accepts members of all kinds, regardless of prior experience. There are no official try-outs, and all students are welcome to check them out. Practices are every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on the lower recreation field (by the sand and volleyball courts).

According to Greening, students interested in joining Embry-Riddle Rugby Club can join on Eagle Life or “just show up when we are playing, and they can join in.”
