Richmond Strikers Rugby’s goal is to bring quality rugby programming to the greater Richmond area under the umbrella of the well-established and respected Richmond Strikers club.
Programming for Strikers Rugby will begin in the Spring of 2018. The spring season is tackle only and practice begins in January and will be held twice a week. The games will run from March to May and the season ends with a state tournament in May. This is a travel program.
Practices for the spring season will begin in January at Sports Reality in Mechanicsville and will be held Sunday and Wednesday evenings through February. In March, practices will move to outdoor facilities at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College and Greenwood Park when it opens. Outdoor practices will be held on Monday and Wednesdayevenings. All times for each age group are TBD.
Rugby programming will also be available during the summer in the form of both touch and tackle with practices beginning in May. Games are in June and July with the season ends with a state tournament in July. This will also be a travel program for tackle while touch may involve some travel.
