  1. I played Rugby at Towson University 75-77, player and coach at West Virginia University 77-79 and in Washington DC 1983. I have retired to Terra Ceia, FL and would love to help coach and or train women’s rugby at any age. If anyone needs this kind of help send me a message at

  2. I am looking for a rugby club near Port Richey, I am a winter and also play full back. kindly give some useful information. Thank you for your assistance.
    Contact number is 8134095081

  3. Hi! I’m a 42 yr old woman that has 1 yr rugby experience and recently relocated to South Florida. Interested in playing again.

  4. Hey there,
    My neighbor watched some of LA 7s with his son and the kid really seemed interested. They are in Pasco County one son will be yurningv12 and the other is 6. What youth clubs are nearby, and what sort of rules, fees, and parent networks are in place? Thank you for any help you’re able to provide.

  5. Bula,my name is Orisi Rasiga I’m Fijian born and 28 years old.I was looking for a contact to communicate with any ckub rugby whose willing to sponsor me to come play for any rugby club in the USA.
    I used to play for the Devils Rugby Club in Alice Spring Australia and played for the Central Crusaders 7’s team tour to Darwin Hottest 7’s last year.I would love to come play rugby and gain more knowledge and experience in the U.S..

  6. I wish to help introduce a youth/high school rugby program to Admiral Farragut Academy, a pre-K to 12th grade private, college-prep, boarding and day school located in St. Petersburg, Florida, with a world-renowned boarding and military program that begins in 8th grade.

    Admiral Farragut Academy provides a college preparatory environment that promotes academic excellence, leadership skills, and social development within a diverse community of young men and women.

    I’m a graduate and wish to give back to the school, augmenting their athletic program. Both my sons benefited playing rugby in high school, college, and beyond . . . having received tremendous exposure/education to the world, having played at the highest level throughout the world.

    I need help in building the case for the introduction of an alternative new sport within their athletics’ program and within the leagues they compete.

    Please feel free to contact me to discuss. Thank you in advance.

  7. I’m very interested in joining a club but I have no experience playing nor in depth knowledge of the rules. However, I’m a big competitor and have the endurance and athleticism to play in an adult league. I’m looking for a team to possibly join in south Florida near Doral.

  8. Hi, I am no longer affiliated with the club my contact info is listed for. Could I please be removed, because I don’t want the emails I’ve been getting from people trying to schedule the club & I don’t have the time to forward them to the current players.

  9. Good day.
    Best wishes for 2020, to all at Florida Rugby.

    I would like to introduce myself….. I am a 45 year old male from South Africa, with more than 10 years rugby coaching experience, from u7 to seniors, doing alot of player development and after reading all about Florida Rugby, I would like to apply my knowledge and experience to the Florida Rugby Community, either as a designated team coach or development coaching in general.

    As a skilled rugby coach, I am looking for a coaching position at an established institute, where my abilities will be recognized and appreciated. I am convinced that my background, knowledge of rugby, coaching experience and qualifications all combined make me suitably qualified for your specific requirements.
    Growing up, I always had a great passion for sport, in particular Rugby. After learning from the likes of Blikkies Groenewald, Naas Botha, Wynie Strydom, Willie Hills, Heyneke Meyer, Krynauw Otto, Wicus van Heerden, Vlok Cilliers, Deon Boardman, Jimmy Stonehouse ect, I decided to take up coaching. My reward is seeing a 2nd/3rd-rate player develop into a 1st-Team contender and through my knowledge and experience, I am confident that I can develop any player to his/her’s full potential. I am also confident that I can make a contribution to the administration of a Sports-Institute.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my message. Should you have any vacancies or require more information from me, please feel free to contact me.

    Kind regards
    Neels Gerber

  10. Hi there in Florida,
    I am considering moving to your parts of the World from Durban, South-Africa.
    it would be nice to get some contacts and have a chat about Rugby in the US and what opportunities there might be as a Coach with a few years experience in National as well as Professional Rugby.
    Looking forward hearing from anyone.

  11. Greetings,
    My name is Carrick Pell – I am the Director of Rugby/Head Coach for Babson College (MA). We are a competitive NSCRO team that is seeking a Spring Break destination for our 7s squad.
    Unfortunately, there is no easy way to open comms with the college teams in Florida.

    Our spring break dates will be 3/14-3/22 – This will be the 3rd trip in 4 years that we have taken. 2017 & 2019 we went to St Thomas, USVI. 2017 was epic because they hosted a 4 team tournament and the training/playing facilities were usable. Due to the Hurricane, the playing facilities were unusable and we went down for a team/skills building week – we also had a very raw team.

    This year, we are still raw, mostly new players, but we are going to be very competitive…

    We are interested in Florida in hopes of having an opportunity to train on reasonably acceptable grounds and maybe get a few 7s matches in over the course of the trip.

    Please guide me to the best contact.

  12. Hello
    I would love to help your clubs negotiate their hotels for any out of town events they have coming up. We are completely free because we get a travel agent commission from any major brand hotel. Our rates are guaranteed the lowest group rates for each hotel.

    Do you have some time to chat to learn how I can help with your hotels?

    Thank you!
