If you're interested in joining our team or want to come out to see what it's all about, please fill out this brief questionnaire and we will get in touch with you. We look forward to hearing from you!
When does practice start?
We'll be starting up again in March when we've all thawed out from the winter.
Where does the team play?
The PAC home games are played at one of two locations: 1) Hillsborough High School football field at 466 Raider Blvd, Hillsborough, NJ or 2) Crossroads Middle School at 635 Georges Road, South Brunswick, NJ. Away games are played in various parts of New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Games are on Sundays, either at 1pm or 2pm.
What equipment do I need?
Rugby requires very minimal equipment. Typically you'll need a mouth guard, soccer socks and rugby/soccer boots (cleats). These can all be purchased online or at a sporting goods store such as Sports Authority or Dick's Sporting Goods. We highly recommend that you also purchase rugby specific shorts as they are made to endure the game. You can purchase them online through the Store section of our website. Please click on the Ruggers.com logo and follow the instructions on the right of the banner. The club will supply jerseys for the matches.
When is the practice?
During the season, training sessions are held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at the Hillsborough High School football field and every alternating Thursday at the Crossroads Middle School location. The coaches will remind you where practice will be held.
How much experience do I need?
Not much. Your coaches and teammates will go out of their way to teach you the skills you need to play the game. After participating in controlled practices, you will be eased into action at a pace you are comfortable with.
Are there coaches?
Yes, the PAC Rugby team has USA Rugby Certified Coaches who closely monitor your progress and provide supportive practice sessions as well as personal support to help you reach your goal.
Will I make any friends with PAC?
Rugby is truly a fraternity. You will make friends who you will cherish for the rest of your life. It is a proven fact that when you need a helping hand, you can count on your mates!
