This means that the sport is gaining more and more popularity and new teams are created basically every year. All varsity teams practice and compete at a very high and professional level. They have their own strength and conditioning coach, schedules that allow athletes to perfectly combine their studies and rugby, and all the academic help necessary in order to be successful in the classroom as well. So, if rugby is your passion and you are looking to continue playing rugby at the same time as getting a university education, coming to the US to play college rugby might be the perfect fit for you!
