St. Bonaventure rugby will support you in your quest to develop into a high-quality rugby player and man. By emphasizing decision making, skill acquisition and physical fitness, you will gain the tools to compete at the highest level of American rugby. Current Bonnies have trained with the Junior All American team and Tiger Rugby Academy.
Over the past several years, experienced players from high school teams across New York, the Northeast, Midwest, and Mid-Atlantic regions have helped St. Bonaventure rugby become a premier team in the region. Our current roster includes players with extensive national and international experiences.
While more and more players are entering the collegiate ranks with rugby experience, several top players throughout the team's history have stepped on campus without any previous experience. Football, basketball, hockey and soccer players, wrestlers and track athletes can all find skills that easily transition to the rugby pitch.
Our full-time, dedicated coaching staff is committed to ensuring your transition to rugby is as smooth as possible. With the proper amount of dedication and hard work, you can quickly develop into a qualified player.
In addition, a certified trainer is on campus 20 hours a week, all of them designated specifically to the care of club sports participants.
