Practice at Mill Creek Towne Local Park, 17401 Shady Grove Rd, Derwood, MD 20855. This is our home pitch and practice field for the rest of the season. We will practice twice a week every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 – 8:00PM through the end of the season in late May.
New players are welcome to come watch a practice before they decide to join. Since our practices aren’t always 100% contact, they will have the opportunity to participate with some skill sessions. We welcome new players at any time during our season. However, the earlier the start, the better prepared you will be for your first match. If you want to try contact practice, the only registration needed is USA Rugby
registration for insurance purposes.
What to bring to practice: water, sneakers, cleats (soccer, field hockey, NOT football), mouth guard, layers of practice attire you do not care about (rugby practice is rough on clothing), a positive, ready to work and learn attitude. BRING A FRIEND!
*Eligibility – Eligibility is based on USA Rugby guidelines. Since spring is our competitive season, we will be starting with contact. Before a player is cleared to participate in contact, we must have the USA Rugby registration completed. All other registration and dues must be complete before our first official match. Please see Registration page.
